TfL “will need more money next year”

London’s Deputy Mayor is warning that the capital’s transport network will need further taxpayers’ money to keep running next year.

Heidi Alexander has told Reuters “In the next financial year, we are still going to need considerable government support to cope with the impact of the [coronavirus] pandemic.”

Transport for London has had two ten-figure bailouts since passenger numbers plunged after the government asked people not to use public transport unless absolutely essential, and enforced the two-metre rule.

The Government cash injections have come with a series of conditions including changing times and eligibility for free travel and increasing the cost and times of the congestion charge zone.
