Transport for London (TfL) funds the Metropolitan Police Service’s taxi and private hire policing team within the Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC). It is not possible to provide an exact funding amount for each year as the costs for non-pay items such supplies and services cannot be split down to a unit/team level, but are budgeted for the total command. An average has therefore been included based on the total non-pay budget for the RTPC each year.

The estimated contribution for the last 3 years also includes pay, overtime and overhead costs as follows:
