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:
- Elizabeth line passenger services run through Romford, Gidea Park and Harold Wood stations
- Our Everyone's Future Counts document highlights 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 - Havering
LIP targets for Havering
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 124,275 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2041 is 97,400.
We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 5,707 daily cycle trips on average starting in Havering 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 91 individuals killed or seriously injured in Havering. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 44.
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 and support the Vision Zero objective to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London's roads by 2041.
Electric scooter (e-scooter) trial
In partnership with London Councils, we're running an e-scooter trial to make e-scooters available to rent in a number of London boroughs. Working together on a single trial means that the scheme can run more consistently across participating boroughs, with safety at its core.
Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) operates across all London boroughs and the City of London. The M25 is not in the zone. This is part of the commitment by the Mayor and TfL to help every Londoner breathe cleaner air.
The ULEZ operates 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.
If you drive anywhere within the ULEZ, and your vehicle does not meet the emissions standards, you could face a daily charge of £12.50. Use the TfL vehicle checker to see if your vehicle is compliant.
What we're working on in Havering

Work now going on in your borough includes:
- Beam Parkway - working with the borough, we're part funding a scheme that includes new segregated cycle lanes, more crossing points and improved public spaces along the A1306 New Road in Rainham. This will support the new Beam Park rail station and recently approved housing zone

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.
