Update ends

Transport for London exists to keep London working and growing and to make life in the Capital better. 

We run a wide range of transport services, invest in major upgrades of the public transport and roads networks and plan for the city’s future. 

We are committed to improving transparency for our customers and stakeholders and we are making more information available than ever before.

With responsibility for billions of road and public transport journeys every year and an annual budget of around £9bn, we are a large organisation undertaking a wide range of activities. We publish a huge amount of data reflecting the scale of what we do including contracts, expenditure, operational and financial performance, customer satisfaction and journey patterns. This helps people understand how we run London's transport network, and how we reinvest in transport the money raised through fares, charges, Government grants and commercial activity.

Openness and transparency in these and other areas help to transform the way in which we operate. It strengthens our relationships with customers and stakeholders, and helps us to work with local communities and businesses to improve our services.

This information also enables innovation in the way our customers travel, with our real time data feeds leading to the development of hundreds of smartphone apps to help people get around the Capital.

By being open and accountable we:

  • Enable our stakeholders to hold us to account
  • Deliver better value for money
  • Help businesses, non-profit organisations, academics and others make transport in London better.
     

As part of delivering for London, we are committed to being open and transparent about what we do and how we do it and recognise that we must constantly review how we approach this. 

We have developed a Transparency Strategy and earlier this yeat invited you to comment on the main areas where you think we can improve upon what we do already, in order to provide the information that you want.  In particular, we wanted your feedback on whether:

  • we are publishing the information you want to know
  • we are publishing it in a way that is useful to you
  • additionally we asked for your suggestions for any further information we should be making publicly available as a matter of course.
