Answered By:

As a public sector organisation, TfL is mindful of remuneration for all senior appointments.

TfL has a rigorous remuneration policy which it uses to benchmark roles appropriately, including a standing Remuneration Committee. This will ensure a fair and justifiable salary for any incoming TfL Commissioner once the permanent recruitment for this role is undertaken.
