London : Public transport networks

What we do

We are London’s integrated transport authority. We implement the Mayor’s Transport Strategy to keep London moving, working and growing and make life in London better. We are funded by fare and tax payers and by commercial revenue from property and advertising. Every penny of our income is reinvested in transport.

Our customers tell us that they want us to deliver: safe and reliable transport services; value for money; and progress and innovation to improve their journeys. In short, they want us to recognise that every journey matters.

Number of journeys made in London 2014 /15

More than 30 million journeys are made on our road and public transport networks every day. Since 2000, the public transport mode share for London has increased by 10.6%. We are delivering one of the world’s largest programmes of transport capital investment.

We directly manage the 580km of London’s busiest road network, 6,200 traffic signals and control the flow on all of London’s roads. We regulate taxis and private hire trade. We operate the Congestion Charging and Low Emission Zone.

£200bn of freight is moved on London’s roads every year.
