Plans to scrap the sector’s exemption were first published in July and, following a public consultation, TfL has confirmed they will now come into effect next year.
Unemployed Londoners should be encouraged and supported to consider a career with the London Ambulance Service, according to a new report published today by the London Assembly’s Health Committee.
The £23 million scheme is expected to launch ahead of next April’s introduction of the new Ultra Low Emission Zone and will initially be targeted at firms with fewer than 10 employees.
The new year will see a number of changes to the capital’s Taxicard scheme and the Private Hire (minicab) element of Dial-a-Ride services, starting with the introduction of a new maximum fare guarantee for Taxicard members from January 1st.
The delay is expected to cost TfL up to £600m in lost fares revenue, with millions more lost in commercial income, on top of which TfL and City Hall need to repay a £1.4bn Government loan made to allow construction to be completed.
