The Community Action Party candidate for Salford Mayor Michael Moulding outlines his plan for free/cheaper public transport in Salford for everyone !


The Community Action Party candidate for Salford Mayor Michael Moulding went onto BBC Radio Manchester today and outlined his bold proposals to bring down the cost of public transport in Salford and to introduce free circular routes connecting parts of the city.

The Community Action Party will review our arrangements with the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA)to bring services back under the control of Salford which includes management of our public transport system.

The Community Action Party will then use its influence within AGMA to seek its abolition as an expensive tier of government we do not need nor do we want.

Michael Moulding, Community Action Party candidate for Salford Mayor says "Public transport costs in Salford have soared but no-one has the political will to do anything about it. As Mayor, I will make it clear, if fares do not come down I will do something about it."

The Community Action Party also want free public transport in Salford and new circular routes connecting all parts of the city. Mike Moulding says "Bringing public transport back to Salford means lower and free fares for everyone. It means we have more control over our own services."

Mike continues "First Buses in Greater Manchester are making several hundreds millions in profit in Greater Manchester alone. This is totally unacceptable and if they dont bring costs down I can and will do something about it."

The Community Action party in Greater Manchester are campaigning for free public transport in Greater Manchester.

Peter franzen Leader of the Community Action party says "I am the only elected representative in Greater Manchester that has voted for free public transport for all. It can be done."

This is definately the only way to go . Nationalisation would be even better. In any event the monopoly of First Bus , and their extortionate fares must cease . £4-50 FOR A DAY'SAVER' IS OBSCENE .
Well done .

I was the only one of thirty three members of the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Authority to unequivocally oppose congestion charging, to call for the nationalisation of public transport
and to call for free public transport for the whole of Greater Manchester.
I am delighted to see that Michael Moulding has included free public transport in his manifesto.
However I am not surprised that he is the only Mayoral candidate to do so.
