Question

I am delighted to hear that pupils from school years 1-11 can travel on the Emirates Air Line for just £1 when in a school group. However, can you give me a detailed breakdown of the numbers of people that use the service since it was first implemented?

Yes, the Emirates Air Line schools' scheme will provide a fantastic opportunity for our young people to experience the thrill of soaring high above the London skyline. I am delighted that, by Wednesday 12 June, TfL had already taken bookings for over 5,500 children under this scheme.

Information about the total number of users since the launch of the service is available on the TfL website at: www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/modesoftransport/26168.aspx.
