Question

Transport for London claims in a recent document 'Future plans for the bus network' that it wishes to see the number of daily bus trips growing from 3.4 million to more than 5 million by 2041.  Will you set out any interim targets relating to this objective, including what you expect the number of bus trips in London will be by 2020?

Answer for Bus trips in London

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Transport Strategy established the overarching objective of increasing the proportion of journeys undertaken by public transport, walking and cycling to 80 per cent of all journeys by 2041. Increasing the use of the bus is a key part of achieving this goal. Transport for London's forthcoming Business Plan published later this year will set out a trajectory for modal change in London and my expectations of bus demand over the next few years.
