Mayor’s Transport Strategy

Air quality has become an important topic of discussion for Londoners. With the introduction of zero emission zones in the city center, residents and visitors to the capital are encouraged to use public transport or carry out their journeys cycling or on foot. All of which is part of Mayor Sadiq Khan’s Transport Strategy to see London becoming healthier, greener and less congested.
