Answer for New powers over pedicabs

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have raised the need for pedicabs to be brought within TfL's regulatory framework at the two meetings I have had with the Secretary of State for Transport this year. My Deputy Mayor for Transport raised the issue in her meetings with the former Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Lord Ahmad and written to the current Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Roads, Local Transport and Devolution on the issue. In addition, both GLA and TfL officers continue to raise the issue regularly in meetings with Department for Transport officials and through TfL's engagement with the Government's Task and Finish Group on Taxi and Private Hire Regulation.
