Question

On 19th July 2012, it was announced that TfL would provide military personnel with free travel during London 2012 Games. This offer was then made permanent. Service Personnel must be travelling in issued uniform (with head dress) and in possession of a MoD Form 90 ID card to benefit from this free travel. Will you publish a copy of the agreement between TfL and the MOD that gives effect to this free travel concession?

The Armed Forces free travel concession was given effect by Mayoral Decision Form MD1225.  This is available via the GLA website.

As noted in the Mayoral Decision, the Ministry of Defence and Senior Armed Forces staff were involved in defining the terms of the concession and fully supported the final format.
