Londoners, journalists and campaigners are being asked for their views on how Transport for London can improve its transparency and accountability.
As previously reported, the Mayor’s transport agency is developing plans to publish greater amounts of information on its website, avoiding the need for Freedom of Information requests and ensuring commonly requested information is easily available.
To help shape this new ‘transparency strategy’ TfL is inviting interested stakeholders to comment both on the organisation’s existing publication schemes and the types of information they’d like to be made available.
A consultation on its plans is available via the TfL website and runs until March 8th.
Announcing the consultation, Transport Commissioner Sir Peter Hendy said: “Openness and transparency about what we do is a vital ingredient to delivering better transport services for London.
“We publish a huge amount of information and data to help our customers and stakeholders hold us to account, but we want to make sure we are publishing what people want and in a way that they find helpful.”
