Well done for promising to introduce a companion travel pass for those travelling with disabled Londoners if you are re-elected Mayor. What understanding does TfL currently have with regards to:

How many disabled Londoners would likely qualify for this support? The likely criteria that would be applied?

As a non-political statutory body, Transport for London (TfL) will not be commenting on pledges from Mayoral or London Assembly candidates.

The cost of introducing and maintaining a concession for travel companions, and the likely financial savings, would depend on several assumptions and the criteria used, which TfL would need to develop.

If I am re-elected, I will instruct TfL to undertake this work.
