Reacting to the news today (19 January 2024) that TfL fares will be frozen for 2024-25, Michael Roberts, CEO of London transport watchdog London TravelWatch, said:

All of the top ten most used rail stations are in London. The TfL Elizabeth line has clearly shaken up the rankings with Paddington, Farringdon and Tottenham Court Road all making the top ten.

Transport watchdog responds to serious incident that took place on Thursday 7 December.
Michael Roberts, Chief Executive of London TravelWatch says:
Our latest survey ‘Out In London – LGBTQ+ people’s safety on the London transport network’ reveals the extent of abuse, harassment and violence faced by the LGBTQ+ community when travelling in and around the capital:
- One in five (21%) survey respondents said they have experienced hate crime in the past year while travelling on public transport in London
- Four in five (82%) respondents change their behaviour or appearance to ‘fit in’ so they avoid abuse or harassment when travelling
- 65% of respondents who had experienced abuse or harm when travelling in London said bystanders witnessed the incident but did not intervene
- Many LGBTQ+ people we spoke to have little confidence or trust in the police, so incidents on London’s public transport network often go unreported
