Transport for London Corporate Archives holds business records for TfL and its predecessors and transport organisations and companies. Some of the early records are also held at the London Metropolitan Archives on behalf of the TfL Corporate Archives. In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK, TfL services were reduced. All night metro and metro services, as well as all services on the Waterloo & City line, were suspended from 20 March and 40 metro stations closed on the same day.  The Mayor of London and TfL have urged people to use public transport only when absolutely necessary for essential workers to use it.  The London Underground introduced new measures on 25 March to combat the spread of the virus by slowing the flow of passengers to the platforms. Measures included imposing queues at ticket counters and closing some escalators.  In April, TfL tested changes that encouraged passengers to board London buses through the middle doors to reduce risk to drivers after the deaths of 14 TfL workers, including nine drivers.  This measure was extended to all routes on April 20 and passengers no longer had to pay, so they did not have to use the card reader close to the driver.  Most modes of transport controlled by TfL have their own pricing and ticketing systems for the individual fare.
Buses and trams share a common fare and ticketing system, and DLR, Overground, Metro and National Rail services share another. TfL commissioned a survey in 2013 which showed that 15% of women using public transport in London were victims of some form of unwanted sexual behaviour, but 90% of incidents went unreported to the police. To reduce sexual offences and increase coverage, TfL launched the Guardian Project in partnership with the UK Transport Police, the Metropolitan Police Service and the City of London Police Project.  Each of the major transport units has its own corporate identity, consisting of different coloured versions of the standard roundel logo and the corresponding letters above the horizontal bars. The roundel shown in blue without lettering represents TfL as a whole (see Transport for London logo) and is used in situations where labelling on the roundel is not possible (e.g. Bus receipts where the logo is an empty roundel with the name „London Bus“ on the right). The same colour scheme is also widely used in advertising and on the TfL website. In 2015, TfL launched an 18-month programme of activities in partnership with the London Transport Museum and sponsored by Exterion Media Transported by Design. The aim is to demonstrate the importance of physical and service design across London`s transport network. In October 2015, after two months of public voting, the black taxi topped the list of London`s most popular transport icons, which included the original map of the Routemaster bus and tube, among others.  In 2016, the program hosted exhibitions, walks, and a festival on Regent Street on July 3.   TfL also owns and operates the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, a museum that preserves, researches and explains the heritage of London`s transport system over the past 200 years.
It examines both the past with an examination of the days passed since 1800 and the developments and expansions of today`s traffic. The museum also has an extensive repository in Acton, which contains material that cannot be displayed in the Central London Museum, including many additional road vehicles, trains, panel collections and promotional material. The depot has several weekends open per year. There are also occasional museum trains on the metropolitan line. After the bombings of the subway and bus system on July 7, 2005, many employees were included in the 2006 New Year list for their work. They helped survivors, removed bodies and set up the transport system to get millions of commuters out of London at the end of the working day. [a] TfL is controlled by a board appointed by the Mayor of London, a position Sadiq Khan has held since May 2016. The London Transportation Commissioner reports to the Board of Directors and leads a management team with individual functional responsibilities.
Transport for London (TfL) is a local administrative authority responsible for most of the transport network in London, United Kingdom.  On 1 June 2008, the consumption of alcoholic beverages was banned on London Overground subways and trains, buses, trams, the Docklands Light Railway and all stations operated by TfL in London, but not in those operated by other railway companies.   TfL has also banned the transport of open containers of alcohol on public transport. The Mayor of London and TfL announced the ban in a bid to provide passengers with a safer and more enjoyable experience. The day before the ban went into effect, there were „Last Round on the Underground“ parties. Passengers who refuse to comply with the ban may be denied travel and asked to leave. The GLA reported in 2011 that attacks on London Underground staff had decreased by 15% since the ban was introduced.  In 2014, Transport for London launched the 100 Years of Women in Transport campaign in partnership with the Department for Transport, Crossrail, Network Rail, Women`s Engineering Society and the Women`s Transportation Seminar (WTS). The program was a celebration of the important role women had played in transportation over the past 100 years, following the centennial of the First World War, when 100,000 women entered the transportation industry to take responsibility for men who had enlisted in military service.  The Commission is divided into two main and business services branches, each responsible for different aspects and modes of transportation. The two main directions are: On 7 May, it was reported that TfL had applied for £2 billion in state aid to keep services in operation until September 2020.  On May 12, TfL documents warned that they would lose £4 billion due to the pandemic, saying they needed £3.2 billion to balance a proposed emergency budget for 2021 after losing 90% of their total income.
Without a deal with the government, Deputy Transport Mayor Heidi Alexander said TfL may have to issue an opinion under Article 114 – the equivalent of bankrupting a public body.  On May 14, the UK government agreed to £1.6 billion in emergency funding to keep rail and bus services in service until September – a bailout condemned by Khan as a „band-aid“ calling for agreement on a new, longer-term funding model.  Transport for London has always conducted advertising campaigns to promote the use of the subway. For example, in 1999, they asked artist Stephen Whatley to paint an interior – „The Grand Staircase“ – which he made on site at Buckingham Palace. This painting was reproduced on posters and exhibited throughout the London Underground.  ⚠ Report abuse To notify the Law Society of any inappropriate or offensive content posted on Find a Lawyer, please visit our Contact Us page.
