Underground, Overground, funding agreed

TfL and Government agree long-term deal

Transport for London (TfL) has reached a long-term funding agreement from central Government with around £1.2 billion committed until the end of March 2024. The deal was agreed at a TfL board meeting on 30 August.

It follows months of negotiations and short-term funding deals to ensure TfL can continue to operate, although since early August when the last short-term deal expired, TfL has funded itself from reserves.
