The London Borough of Lambeth was first made aware of the Scheme in March 2008. It is for each Borough to decide if and when they wish to operate the Scheme. Lambeth has expressed an interest in joining the next tranche to apply to operate the Scheme. Lambeth will need to prepare a cost benefit analysis for submission to the Department for Transport as part of their application and TfL has offered to support them as necessary.
