During the mayoral election campaign the issue of young people's behaviour on the buses came up more than any other transport issue.
Boris promised to deal with it and today we completed the a series of policies which have and will reduce crime and antisocial behaviour on the buses.
We already have more uniformed presence on the transport network than at any point in the last 25 years, last year we introduced a behaviour code for recipients of the Zip card and today we launched a payback scheme for young people who breach that code.
Young people who misbehave on bses will have their passes confiscated and will either have to wait a year to get it back or can earn their passes back with voluntary work.
This plan will improve behaviour, teach responsibility and introduce young people to volunteering.
Transport crime has already fallen since Boris brought in his plans and this will help to continue that improvement.
