The aim of this consultation paper is to give information on London transport's rising costs and to ask the general public for comments on the future running of the system. The three alternatives which can secure extra money to maintain and improve existing bus and underground services are listed: (1) fares to go up to meet all increases in costs, (2) rates and fares to go up to meet increases in costs, and (3) fares to be kept steady and rates alone to go up. A further choice between different ways of structuring fares has also to be made; this applies particularly to buses as there is very little opportunity for further simplification of underground fares. The three alternative fare structures are: flat fare, simplified fares, and graduated fares. /TRRL/
