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.
The Green Man Authority
We've updated traffic lights at pedestrian crossings so pedestrians will see a continuous green man signal unless a vehicle is approaching. In that case, the red man will appear.
This initiative, unique to the UK, is part of our wider Streetspace for London programme.
The Green Man Authority technique has been installed in City of London at Long Lane by West Smithfield.
Here are some updates to your travel around London and your borough:
- 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
- Our Turn-up-and-go service has now fully resumed
- The opportunity to feedback on the electric scooter (e-scooter) trial which has started in a small number of boroughs
- We have launched a public consultation to shape future step-free access priorities and improvements on the Tube, the first of its kind in 15 years
- Our Vision Zero progress report outlines achievements from the first three years of the Mayor's Vision Zero plan and commits to new tougher measures to ensure that it meets the goal of eliminating death and serious injury from London's roads

LIP targets for the City of London
Each borough and the City of London 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 City of London was 2,455 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2041 is 2,600.
We also work with boroughs and the City of London to encourage more cycling. We recorded 10,803 daily cycle trips on average starting in City of London between 2015 and 2018.
Vision Zero in the City of London
We are working with boroughs and the City of London 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.
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.
What we're working on in the City of London
- We consult local communities on a range of projects every year. Search our consultation and engagement hub - Have Your Say
- Find out about major works and events near you
- See some ongoing TfL improvements and projects in or near the City of London

Work now going on includes:

Bus network changes
From time to time - after consulting the public - we alter bus routes to reflect changing patterns in demand. We also make temporary changes, often because of road works. See the latest bus changes.
Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
Air pollution is not just a cental London problem, with many areas still exceeding the legal limits for pollution across the city. The Ultra Low Emission Zone in central London has expanded to create a single, larger zone up to the North Circular Road (A406) and South Circular Road (A205). The North and South Circular Roads themselves are not in the zone. This is part of the commitment by the Mayor and TfL to help every Londoner breathe clean air.
The ULEZ will continue to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including weekend (except Christmas day), with a £12.50 daily charge for vehicles that do not meet the required emissions standards.
Four of out of five cars already meet ULEZ emissions standards, but we need owners of the remaining polluting cars, motorcycles, lighter vans and minibuses to take action by checking their vehicle.
