You asked

Please could you inform me, the specific amount per year for the last 5 years that TFL funded/contributed to the Metropolitan Police Cab Unit/services

We answered

TfL Ref: FOI-0818-1718

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 5 July 2017 asking for information about financial contributions.


Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.


I can confirm we do not hold the precise information you require.


TfL fully funds the Metropolitan Police Service’s taxi and private hire policing team within the Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC). However, it is not possible to provide an exact funding amount for each year as the costs for services cannot be split down to a unit/team level but are budgeted for the total command. 


Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.


Yours sincerely


Lee Hill
