London Transport: Public Service or private business?

(in collaboration with London Social Forum-Transport)

Cynthia Hayes is Coordinator of Capital Transport Campaign, Bill Hamilton is Head of Public Affairs, Transport For London. The talk will explore the current situation and possibilities for Transport in London.

CTC was set up 20 years ago to support transport at the abolition of the GLA, and is a forum of trade unions and users. They have been involved in the campaign against PPP, have worked on issues of crowding and the future
for rail passengers.

TfL was set up in July 2000 by the government to take over the running of the capital’s transport at the time when the Mayor was reinstated; Ken Livingstone is its first Chair.
