TfL and the Trustees and management of the London Transport Museum continue to work together to ensure that the museum remains a fantastic attraction.

The Arts Council's grant was for projects over and above the museum's usual activities, so its loss does not affect the museum's core work. Of course, the Museum conducts a wide range of fundraising and sponsorship activities as well.
