Answer for Biking boroughs (3)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The draft Transport Strategy does not include borough-based targets for cycling. The decision on whether to adopt local targets for cycling is one for boroughs themselves to make, informed by London policy - such as the Transport Strategy - and local circumstances, priorities and conditions. TfL will aim to work collaboratively to develop a Biking Borough Plan with any borough that is interested in prioritising cycling and increasing cycling rates in their area.
