TfL Statement regarding latest on TfL Funding Discussions
TfL recently (16 October 2020) gave a statement regarding the latest on TfL Funding Discussions.
A Transport for London (TfL) spokesperson recently said:
“We continue to discuss our funding requirements with the government and hope these discussions can be concluded successfully soon, so we can help London through the next phase of the pandemic.
“We have today agreed with the Government that our funding will be extended for two weeks so that these constructive discussions can be concluded.”
Notes to Editors:
- It has today been agreed that the existing Funding Package will be extended for a further two weeks and will continue to apply until 31 October 2020. As TfL's actual funding shortfall to 17 October was less than £1.6bn, largely due to higher than anticipated ridership, the funding provided under the existing Funding Package can continue to be used and will remain sufficient while discussions continue throughout the next two weeks
- Before the coronavirus pandemic, TfL was on the path to achieving a level of financial self-sufficiency almost unheard of for transport authorities around the world. But the pandemic has massively impacted TfL's finances and significantly reduced our fares revenue
