Transport for London has launched a six week public consultation to help inform a forthcoming update of its Transparency Strategy.
First published in October 2015, the strategy radically overhauled how the agency makes frequently requested data available and saw it adopt a presumption that financial, operational and contractual information would be routinely published and done so in a way which is easily understood and accessed.
The consultation, which will run from 18 September to 29 October 2017, looks to understand how TfL could improve on this approach, including the formats and regularity in which information should be published.
The consultation also asks for any wider comments about how data should be grouped or presented on TfL’s website and whether further support should be provided to developers, stakeholders and researchers who regularly use it.
Howard Carter, TfL’s General Counsel, said: “We publish an extensive range of information already and are committed to improving our transparency further.
“We have been able to implement virtually all the suggestions made by our stakeholders for further information and data to be made available. Our updated Transparency Strategy will look to build on this.”
