The cave of wonders that is Travel in London report number nine
Transport for London’s latest annual orgy of statistical delights tells of ongoing successes and growing challenges with keeping the capital moving
Don’t get too excited by recent “news” that Sadiq Khan is buying no more New Routemaster buses for London’s fleet. After all, he first informed the world that he has dumped the “Boris Bus” near the end of May last year, confirming a manifesto promise he had made loud and often during the mayoral election campaign. Don’t expect them to disappear any time soon, either. Of more topical interest is which London public transport fares have not risen in the New Year and which have, a matter for further coverage later this week when the mayor’s budgets come under London Assembly scrutiny. But surpassing even this is for sheer excitement is Transport for London’s ninth annual Travel in London report, 250 pages of fascinating facts that weren’t published eight months ago. Let’s luxuriate in just a few.
