In its recently published Business Plan, TfL estimates that passenger journeys in 2010 will be 2% less than in 2009 on Tube, DLR and Overground and 2.5% less on buses and trams.

These estimates take into account projections for the London economy and the trends in employment as well as the January fares revision.
