Asked Of: 
The Mayor


Can you please give me more details about the contract that TfL has with The Metro newspaper, when this contract runs out, and what steps will be taken to ensure that, unlike last time, more than one paper applies during the tendering process, and as wide and diverse a selection of applications are received as possible?

This contract allows The Metro newspaper to distribute its publication across the TfL network, and expires in 2020.

Prior to the contract expiring, TfL will undergo a full procurement process to encourage bids from a range of publications.
