Local Implementation Plans (LIPs)
We offer financial support to London's 33 local authorities for schemes to improve their transport networks in line with Mayor's Transport Strategy objectives. This includes the Corridors funding that is allocated by a formula reflecting transport need across London, and bus and cycling project funding following TfL analysis about where the best opportunities lie for investment with best impacts. Find out more about LIPs funding.
We fund projects that encourage walking, cycling and public transport use through the Liveable Neighbourhoods fund. We have now resumed funding for existing Liveable Neighbourhoods.
