anyhow back to commenting upon the item itself

It seems to be rather short of suggestions

I've previously seen ideas such a permanent changes to 60+/Freedom pass
validity and under 18 fares.

all this suggests is:

"bus services and off-peak tube services would be cut by 4%"

Is that such a bad deal?

would many people notice a 4% cut. A once every 20 minute service becomes
once every 21 minutes

6 buses per hour , 24 every 4 hours, becomes 23 every 4 hours

and "the re-opening of the Night Tube would be delayed"

disappointing as it might be to see that happen. Does anybody really think
that night tube is a necessary public service that has to run if it is loss
making?

Back to the night bus the.
