ABOUT THE AWARDS

VIEW SHORTLIST

The awards are supported by Transport for London, London Councils, London Travel Watch and London First and recognise excellence in transport and reward innovation and progress for transport initiatives which are really working in London.

"The London Transport Awards are pivotal in recognising the talent, energy and drive that our city's transport professionals devote to delivering millions of safe journeys every day.

This is a huge challenge to meet - the Capital is growing at a phenomenal rate. Record numbers of customers and users rely on our public transport and road networks to get around the city every day. Everyone working in transport – whether planning the services, building the routes, repairing the trains or pulling together the customer information – has a role to play in ensuring London thrives.

The London Transport Awards recognise and celebrate these efforts, right across the Capital.'

Mike Brown MVO
Commissioner, Transport for London
