Transport for London: Finance

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 148448, tabled on 28 March 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 24 March 2022 to Question 143851 on Transport for London: Finance, if he will make representations to the Mayor of London on the need to protect and preserve TfL services to towns outside of Greater London during his April 2022 review of demand and service levels.

Answered on

31 March 2022

Transport in London is devolved, and therefore it is for the Mayor to make decisions on service levels that support the goal of being financially sustainable by April 2023, while continuing to provide reliable services for passengers both within and outside of Greater London.

Since the start of the pandemic, the Government has provided TfL with close to £5bn in support.
