Sir Peter Hendy, London’s £331,000 a year transport commissioner, charged taxpayers more than £1,200 for lunches and meals between July and September.
Seven meals ranging between £105.37 and £450.00 were claimed on expenses in the period, with Sir Peter charging taxpayers a further £1,067 for taxi journeys.
Hendy’s expenses once again topped the latest disclosure of claims by senior Transport for London executives.
Surface transport boss Leon Daniels, who oversees the capital’s bus service, claimed £836 including £740 to attend the ITS America’s 21st World Congress conference.
Vernon Everitt, TfL’s £228,775 head of press, claimed £127.20 for a “networking dinner” while Tube boss Mike Brown spent £86.25 on taxis.
While taxis and meals continue to dominate the claims, executives have ceased seeking reimbursement for items such as magazine subscriptions and coffee cups since City Hall ordered them to routinely publish their expenses online.
