Mayor launches his Transport Strategy

Added: 4 June 2009 | Updated: 9 June 2009

Mayor Boris Johnson has launched his Transport Strategy by publishing a ‘statement of intent’ for consultation. This document captures his ideas on what direction the up-coming strategy will take – and is essentially a blueprint on the future development of transport in the capital.

However, while ‘improving transport opportunities for all’ is listed as a key challenge that the stratedgy will address, this initial statement is light on details when it comes to improving accessible transport – in particular door to door services. The same crticism was also made by TfA when we responded to the Mayor’s ’Way to Go’ document – the very first document on transport strategy - issued in Nov 2008. (A link to the ‘Way to Go’ document and our response is below)

A consultation process on the statement of intent has been launched, and TfA will be responding in detail to the statement and would encourage all groups and forums of disabled and older people to also feedback their views.

The document is available below:

The deadline for written comments is 5pm on Monday 13 July 2009.
