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:
- 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

Public Transport Access Levels - Harrow
LIP targets for Harrow
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 103,572 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 100,600.
We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 3,198 daily cycle trips on average starting in Harrow 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.
In 2019 there were 56 individuals killed or seriously injured in Harrow. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 38.
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.
Electronic scooter (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 the trial can run consistently across participating boroughs, with safety at its core.
What we're working on in Harrow
- We consult local communities on a range of projects every year. Search our new 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 Harrow
- Find out about property development projects in your borough
Work now going on in your borough includes:
- Step-free access - although affected by the pandemic work on improving access at both Harrow-on-the-Hill and Sudbury Hill stations is progressing and we hope to complete the work during 2021.
- Station car parks - we're searching for a partner to work with us on developing car parks at Canons Park, Rayners Lane and Stanmore Tube stations. These three sites will hold approximately 400 homes, all of which will be affordable, and could also include new retail, commercial and leisure space, as well as improved connections for people walking and cycling in the area
- Four Lines Modernisation - residents will benefit from this London-wide scheme to add room and boost reliability on four Tube lines, making journeys on the Metropolitan line faster and more comfortable
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 central London problem, with many areas still exceeding the legal limits for pollution across the city. That is why on 25 October 2021, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in central London 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 cleaner air.
The ULEZ will continue to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including weekends (except Christmas day), with a £12.50 daily charge for vehicles that do not meet the required emissions standards.
Four out of five cars already meet the ULEZ emissions standards, but we need owners of the remaining polluting cars, motorcycles, lighter vans and minibuses to take action by checking their vehicle.
