'Zero engagement' from Government on TfL funding crisis, Mayor says

The Mayor of London has accused the Government of “zero engagement” over Transport for London’s (TFL) funding crisis, as a current funding settlement reaches expiration. Sadiq Khan on Thursday warned of cuts which have “never been seen in London before” just one day before the fourth funding settlement of the pandemic – which took Government support to £5 billion, reaches an end on Friday. The mayor said, without a long-term funding plan, Londoners would see a 10% reduction in underground services – equivalent to an entire tube line, and the loss of more than 100 bus routes.
