On the TfL website page 'How We are Funded' could a graph or chart be added to portray the sums received from each of the six income sources? Also a chart or graph to show how the current year's split differs from previous years would be useful. At present this webpage is very general and inaccessible for those who interpret information more easily when it is presented pictorially rather than as a dense chunk of text.

TfL will add a web-accessible infographic showing the proportion of income that comes from: fares and the Congestion Charge; London's business rates; prudential borrowing; commercial development of its estate; and third-party funding for specific projects.


Pages in 'About TfL' are intended to be a general introduction to the organisation and its activities. These pages carefully balance the need for a digestible overview for the public with more detailed information for stakeholders, which we hope the infographic will provide.


A link to TfL's Business Plan and Budget documents will be added, which will include infographics and charts covering TfL's finances.
