Patronage on the Docklands Light Railway increased by 10 million to reach a record 110 million during the year, while Overground services transported nearly 140 million passengers, an increase of 5 million. London buses carried 2.4 billion passengers, which is more than 50% of all the journeys made in England.


With London's population set to grow from 8.6 million today to 10 million by 2030, Transport for London (TfL) expects this number to continue to increase. It says its investments in Crossrail as well as enhancements to the underground network through line extensions, station enhancements, improved signalling which will boost capacity, and new rolling stock, are intended to leave it in a position to cope with future demand.

"Demand for our services continues to grow with London's success and we are committed to a relentless focus on improving the day-to-day reliability and safety of public transport and the road network," says Sir Peter Hendy, London's transport commissioner.
