Maryland Zone 2/3 Campaign

#MarylandZone2

Maryland was the only station in the Stratford area not to be re-zoned to 2/3 in January, meaning residents, many of whom are on low incomes, could end up paying over £200 more this year to use their local station compared to those living elsewhere in the area.

Newham continues to be one of the most deprived areas of the country with household incomes among the lowest in London and while the 100,000 weekly users of the eight re-zoned stations in the Stratford and Newtown ward now benefit from cheaper travel, those living in Maryland do not. We believe this is unfair and we are asking the Mayor and Commissioner of TfL to include Maryland station in zone 2/3. 

Lyn Brown MP has already given her support and at the last Newham Council meeting the Mayor of Newham agreed to include this campaign in the Council’s 16/17 priority.

All London Mayoral and City and East London Assembly candidates have been written to asking for their support and to include this in their manifesto, Unmesh Desai is the first candidate to back this campaign and we hope other follow suit.

How can you help?

  1. Please sign our petition  and share this with your neighbours.
  2. Come along to the Maryland Zone 2 presentation meeting with London Mayoral candidates and GLA (Greater London Authority) candidates on Sunday 24th April 3:30pm at Nooks Cafe.
