'Deprived Londoners left behind' by lack of transport access
Londoners in deprived areas are less likely to have easy access to the capital's transport system, a London Assembly Labour group report has said.
In her report, London Labour group's Val Shawcross said deprived communities should not be "left behind".
She said the mayor needed a "targeted plan to tackle transport inequality".
The mayor's office said 95% of people lived close to a bus stop and there was a wide range of bus fare concessions.
The report, Tackling Poverty: One Bus Ride Away, said bus services would increase by 4% by 2020, according to the London Assembly, despite a predicted population increase of 1.2 million - roughly 14% growth.
'Growth and opportunity'
Ms Shawcross, Labour's London Assembly transport spokeswoman, said: "Throughout his time as mayor Boris Johnson has continually prioritised grand vanity projects at the expense of the improving connectivity and fairness in our transport system."
A Mayor of London spokesman said: "The network, which carries 2.4 billion passengers a year, serves each corner of the capital, with 95% of Londoners living within 400m of a bus stop.
"We also have the largest range of bus fare concessions in the country, providing around 40% of Londoners, including those undertaking apprenticeships, with discounted travel."
He said the mayor's recently published 2050 Infrastructure Plan recognised that transport-led regeneration was key to unlocking jobs, growth and opportunity.
