London First comments on latest TfL funding extension
Commenting on the latest funding extension for Transport for London, John Dickie, Chief Executive of London First, said:
“It’s a relief that a deal has been done, but it’s disappointing that it’s just for six months, and cutting funding at the point we need to get people back into London is no way to rebuild the economy.
“We need to use these six months to put in place a sustainable, long-term approach for London’s post-pandemic transport needs. We will need to look constructively and laterally at new sources of funding for TfL. Business stands ready to play its part in helping build a solution.”
