Healthy streets schemes
We are working to support boroughs in the delivery of their schemes within the current funding environment. In places this means new cycle routes and low traffic neighbourhoods and in others prioritising buses and making journey times faster and more reliable.
Here are some updates to your travel around London and your borough:
- We are asking Londoners to share views on proposed changes to bus routes into central London - find out more and have your say by visiting Central London Bus Review at: https://haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/busreview
- The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has asked TfL to consult on expanding the Ultra Low Emission Zone to London-wide by 2023. Share your views at: https://haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/cleanair
- The Elizabeth line is now open and passenger services run through Abbey Wood station
- We have published our Everyone's Future Counts document, which highights our programmes designed to support those who are held back due to barriers in education and in the workplace
- We have published our annual Gender, Ethnicity and Disability Pay Gap reports
- Our safer travel guidance has been updated
- The TfL Go app will help you travel comfortably
- Our pay as you go fares are automatically capped, so you don't need to buy a travel card in advance. Create an online account or use the Oyster app to quickly and easily calculate your expenses
- Travel guidance for businesses and their staff

Public Transport Access Levels - Bexley
LIP targets for Bexley
Each borough has set targets in their LIP against the Mayor's Transport Strategy outcomes - we track and report on progress against these targets in the LIP3 MTS outcomes borough data pack.
For example, the car ownership in the borough was 112,522 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 112,000.
We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 5,291 daily cycle trips on average starting in Bexley between 2015 and 2018.
Vision Zero in your borough
We are working with boroughs to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries from all road collisions to zero by 2041. They are responsible for enforcing safe speeds on their roads, as well as leading community programmes to encourage using roads safely. Find out more about Vision Zero.
In 2019 there were 77 individuals killed or seriously injured in Bexley. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 52.
Helping your community
The Vision Zero dashboard enables organisations and members of the public to more easily access and interpret collision data. In sharing collision data in this way, organisations can better identify the road danger challenges specific to their respective sectors and communities, and work together with us, London's boroughs and other agencies to tackle them.
The dashboard currently comprises collision data from 2017-2020 and will soon include future data and further analysis capability.
TfL's Motorcycle safety courses
We offer a range of free online and face to face motorcycle safety training courses across all boroughs to help ensure motorcyclists stay safe on London's busy roads. This also supports the Vision Zero objective to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London's roads by 2041.
Electric scooter (e-scooters) trial
In partnership with London Councils, we're running an e-scooters trial. On 7 June 2021 e-scooters became available to rent in a small number of London boroughs. Working together on a single trial means the trial can run consistently across participating boroughs, with safety at its core. We are still inviting boroughs to join the trial. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch.
