Our response to new short-term emergency funding for TFL

Responding to the latest extension of the emergency funding deal for Transport for London agreed between City Hall and the government until 13 July, Claire Harding, Research Director, Centre for London said:

“This latest short term funding extension will keep London’s buses and trains running until the middle of next month, with no certainty on what will happen after that. Transport for London and the Department for Transport must urgently seek a deal that works for Londoners and for London’s businesses, as cuts to services would make it much harder for people to get to work, study, and to visit loved ones – and threaten London’s competitiveness as a global city.”
