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.

LIP targets for Bromley
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 156,1112 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 152,900.
We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 8,217 daily cycle trips on average starting in Bromley between 2015 and 2018.
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 and the Lowering Speed Limits Programme.
In 2019 there were 106 individuals killed or seriously injured in Bromley. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 79.
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. These help motorcyclists stay safe on London's busy roads and support the Vision Zero objective to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London's roads by 2041.
Electric scooters (e-scooters) trial
In partnership with London Councils, we're running an e-scooters trial. On Monday 7 June 2021 e-scooters became available to rent in a small number of London boroughs. Working together on a single trial means that the trial can run consistently across participating boroughs with safety at its core.
We're still inviting boroughs to take part in the trial. Please get in touch if you'd like to join in.
