Understanding London's travel needs

This document details research which has been undertaken to identify the different barriers faced by London's communities when accessing transport.

It also describes travel patterns and behaviour of different groups and their attitudes towards issues such as fares, personal safety and security, and their satisfaction with the services we offer.

Equality Impact Assessments (EqIAs)

As a public body, we must comply with the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). This part of the Equality Act 2010 requires public bodies and organisations to consider any needs of or the impact on people with protected characteristics when carrying out public functions.

An EqIA is a tool used to demonstrate that we have met the PSED duties within the Equality Act 2010. The EqIA process helps us to make more inclusive decisions and to ensure that our programmes, policies, projects and the way we design build and operate services works well for our staff and our customers.

When reading an EqIA it can be helpful to think of it like a risk assessment, where some of the issues identified may be potential and often reflect a 'worst case' scenario. Nevertheless, as part of our commitment to safe, affordable, accessible and inclusive end-to-end journeys,we will still do all we can to offset or reduce any risks we can see.

Action on Equality

This plan, published in March 2016, sets out our equality commitments for 2016-20.

The current Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, will publish his own strategy for equality, diversity and inclusion in 2017. We will then revise the Action on Equality plan to make sure it reflects his vision and level of ambition.

Action on Equality is underpinned by the way we treat our customers, support our people and work with our partners.

2016/17 Progress report

When we published our equality objectives we also committed to report every year on the progress we've made.
