Answer for Mayor's Vision for Cycling (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Vision for Cycling sets out how I propose to realise the benefits that an increase in cycling can bring to London. It details how I want to make cycling a normal part of everyday life which is enjoyed by people of all backgrounds. I also make clear my intention to make cycling safer and for people to feel safer.

TfL is monitoring progress towards achieving my Transport Strategy target of a 5 per cent mode share for cycling in London by 2026. Progress against the target is reported annually in the Travel in London report each December. Further information collected, including bike ownership, cycle commuting patterns, the demographics of cyclists, and the areas in which people are cycling will enable TfL to monitor progress towards this aim over the longer term.

TfL also monitors collisions on the road network in order to inform targeting of interventions aimed at reducing the number and severity of collisions.

In addition, TfL will work with the boroughs and other delivery partners to monitor the success of individual programmes.
