What plans, if any, do you have to reduce the cost of River Services in order to encourage people to use it as an alternative to the tube or rail?

I fully support the usage of the river for passenger transport. I do not have the jurisdiction to set fares for passenger boat services on the Thames, which are set by the operators themselves.

We have invested significant time and resource into promoting the river, along with the Port of London Authority and other partners, and will continue to ensure all Transport for London’s central London piers are made available for service all year round.
