Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL advertising policy does not restrict it from accepting advertising from organisations associated with the industries it licenses. TfL accepts advertisements from a wide range of commercial brands across its estate, and all campaigns are assessed to ensure they comply with TfL's policy.

TfL does not run advertisements from Taxi and Private Hire companies on the Taxi and Private Hire pages of its website. TfL is currently reviewing whether it should extend this restriction to all areas of its website and to all organisations that it is responsible for licensing.
