FRIST campaigns for better and less expensive transport links between Scilly and the mainland. We recognize however that even getting to the mainland ferry terminal at Penzance or one of the airports serving the islands is becoming increasingly expensive for visitors. For this reason we are drawing your attention to campaign group 38 Degrees’ “Fair Fares Now” petition.
38 Degrees launched this petition in January in response to 10 years of large (RPI + 1%), above inflation fares increases to send a clear message to the Government that enough is enough, now is the time to commit to making rail fares simpler and cheaper for all. After all travel by rail is environmentally desirable and we should be encouraging it.
