- ‘Monumental’ effort required from all Londoners to enable social distancing on public transport as lockdown is eased
- Car-free streets set to enable millions of journeys to be safely made on foot or by bike
- Londoners asked to walk or cycle for journeys from mainline rail stations rather than use the Tube
- The Congestion Charge, Ultra Low Emission Zone and Low Emission Zone will be reinstated on Monday (18 May) to prevent London’s roads from becoming unusably blocked
- To support NHS staff, the Congestion Charge reimbursement scheme is being extended and will also be open to care home workers
- As a Government condition of TfL funding deal it is proposed to review the Congestion Charge. As a temporary measure and to support the transformation of London’s streets, it is proposed that the Congestion Charge will increase to £15 next month and the hours of operation extended
- Public transport must now be a last resort. Londoners must continue working from home and spend more leisure time in local areas.
TfL is set to publish a range of materials to help Londoners walk and cycle including a cycle Tube map and a Tube walking map.
