A Passage Plan sets out how a boat operating company will navigate the River Thames in the operation of a particular river service. They are vital to the safe navigation of the river and are entirely a matter for the Port of London Authority (PLA) to address with boat operators. Passage Plan amendments are approved before the relevant changes to a route (such as the introduction of a new pier) are made.

The PLA's approval of a boat operator's Passage Plan assures Transport for London that the plan for the operation of the route has met the necessary safe navigation requirements.
