Getting around your borough
The Mayor's Transport Strategy sets out a target of 80% of all trips in London to be made by public transport, walking or cycling by 2041.
Public transport, cycling and walking
Streetspace for London
We are working with your borough to widen pavements at town centres and transport hubs, create temporary cycle routes on our transport network and low traffic neighbourhoods.
New online Cycle Skills course
To ensure as many Londoners as possible are equipped with the basic skills needed to cycle safely in London, the Mayor has launched a new online Cycle Skills course.
The course follows Bikeability National Standards, and there are four modules to cater for cyclists of all abilities from new cyclists to those who want to brush up on their skills, or cycle with children:
- Get ready to ride
- First time on the road
- On the road again
- Cycling with children
Driving in London
- To help ease congestion and tackle poor air quality in the city, Congestion Charge and Ultra Low Emission (ULEZ) zones operate in London
- We own and maintain all red routes in London. This includes taxi ranks on these roads. Stopping or parking is prohibited on the 580 kilometres of London red routes
- To contribute to cleaner air in London we also work in partnership with London boroughs and the City of London to increase rapid charging points across the Capital
Congestion Charge reimbursement scheme
Local authorities within the Congestion Charge Zone can now apply for reimbursement for those workers providing support or services in response to the pandemic. Workers delivering food or medicine, or providing nursing or case services for vulnerable people on behalf of local authorities can reclaim the money from their organisation. Go to Amendments, refunds and reimbursements for further information.
Local Authorities should send any queries to Local Authority Refunds.
Application guidance and frequently asked questions
Stay up to date with changes to our services by:
Accessible transport in your borough
We want travel in London to be fully accessible. Your feedback helps us to challenge our technology, infrastructure and customer service for more improvements.
You have told us you want to see more step-free access at Tube and London Overground stations. We are improving many stations to create step-free access over the next few years.
Assisted travel services
Dial-a-Ride is a free door-to-door assisted transport service for elderly and disabled users. It can be used for trips such as shopping, visiting family and travelling to leisure activities.
Dial-a-Ride is not available to those who live or travel outside the M25 and no longer serves any hospital appointments or visits.
Older London residents and anyone with a long-term or permanent disability can join Dial-a-Ride. Find out how to apply on the Dial-a-Ride Membership page.
Travel Mentors can advise on planning accessible journeys or support and accompany anyone making a journey a few times. This helps instil confidence and gives them all the right tools to become an independent traveller across our network. This includes people who use mobility scooters and other mobility aids.
People who prefer to explore public transport on their own can use our accessibility maps.
We're always looking for ways to improve the accessibility of our services. If you have a question or an issue, contact us about accessibility.
Find out how to book a Dial-a-Ride journey, discuss an existing journey, find out where the bus is, cancel a journey - or discuss our service - on the Dial-a-Ride Bookings page.
To report a Countdown sign, any issues with your bus shelter or bus stop or report or commend a bus driver, fill out the online contact us form for buses.
You can also raise bus performance issues such as frequency or overcrowding. Find out how on our Help and contacts page.
For councillors and borough officers

Each borough has been given the name of a dedicated LCP contact to manage their relationship with us.
