Sam Tarry – 2021 Comments on TFL Funding Agreement

The comments made by Sam Tarry, the Shadow Transport Minister, on 19 March 2021.

The Government’s offer falls far short of what TfL and Londoners need.

When ridership numbers are at a record low with the Covid crisis keeping commuters away, yet another piecemeal funding deal only serves to kick the can down the road for a few more weeks.

The Government needs to get a grip and finally deliver a long-term funding package that secures the future of our urban transport networks.
