Transport for London

Transport for London (TfL) is responsible for the day-to-day to operation of the Capital's public transport network, managing London's main roads and planning and building new infrastructure. No other city is as defined by its transport system as London, with its red buses, black cabs and Tube trains instantly recognised the world over. Every day, more than 31 million journeys are made across our network.

Every journey matters to us and we do all we can to keep the city moving, making sure the transport network is safe, reliable and fit for the future. We manage London's buses, the Tube network, Docklands Light Railway, Overground and Tramlink. We also run Santander Cycles, London River Services, Victoria Coach Station, the Emirates Air Line and London Transport Museum. As well as controlling a 580km network of main roads and the city's 6,000 traffic lights, we regulate London's taxis and private hire vehicles and the Congestion Charge scheme.

We don’t make a profit because we reinvest all our income to run and improve services. This allows us to upgrade stations and bring in new trains, tubes and buses to continually improve capacity and reliability. Through our £4 billion Road Modernisation Plan, we are also making the biggest investment in a generation to improve roads and streets for cyclists, pedestrians, drivers and public transport customers.
