Influencing the life of London

We look after intricate planning.

With a population of over 8.6 million and more than 17 million visitors every year, London is a city that’s always on the move. Transport for London (TfL) is responsible for looking after the intricate planning and everyday operation of the Capital's transport system. Our people make sure that millions of residents, workers and visitors arrive safely at their destinations, day in, day out.

Improving and expanding London's transport network is central to driving economic growth, jobs and housing in our city. And the work we do at TfL has a direct impact on the lives of millions of people - every single day.
