Transport in London is devolved, and it is for the Mayor and Transport for London (TfL) to take the decisions necessary to ensure a balanced budget.

The Government has provided TfL with more than £4 billion of support through three extraordinary funding and financing agreements since May 2020. These agreements have taken steps to put TfL on a sustainable financial footing while ensuring a fair deal for the taxpayer.

In the most recent funding agreement, of 1 June 2021, paragraph 28 stipulated, “The Government announced that it would pause headline pay awards across the public sector on 25 November 2020. We expect TfL to freeze pay in line with the public sector pay pause […], while TfL is in receipt of significant extraordinary funding.”
