Transportation First

Transportation is a crucial element of any thriving economy.

London must lead the world in building a transportation system of the future that incorporates best-in-class technology, customer experience, and environmental practices while leveraging the innovation, expertise, and accountability of the private sector.

It’s often easy to forget, but the real reason nine million people call London home is rooted in economics. And for these economics to be viable, transportation is key.

Without effective transportation across Greater London, we as citizens might as well all be located in different countries around the globe.

When efficient transport breaks down, it severely damages our economy and in turn the livelihoods of every single one of our citizens.

Which is why I plan on putting Transport First as your next Mayor of London to build the transportation infrastructure of the future by leveraging public planning and private innovation by doing the following:

  • Ensure that Transport For London (TfL) is managed in a fiscally responsible manner by avoiding further government bailouts due to historic poor financial management
  • Build a transportation system of the future that promises to lead the world in technology, customer experience, and environmental friendly practices to deliver a world-class transportation service to all citizens. This will be accomplished by leveraging the innovation, expertise, and accountability of the private sector with the long term planning that only the public sector can provide
  • Freeze fare increases for children, vulnerable groups, the elderly and disabled
  • Remove the physical friction that prohibits unimpeded movement in the capital by abolishing all restricted access for taxis to major carriageways, removing pedestrian social distancing barricades and rethinking empty cycle lanes by proposing mixed use zones to allow the traffic flow of both cars and cycles

As your next Mayor of London I will ensure that we build the transportation system of the future that will in turn propel our economy and make our city a world-class place to live, work and visit.
