ACTIVITYTopic(s) of interest from 2018-2019 Transport Work Programme:

Fields of Activity: Transport for London is the integrated transport authority responsible for delivering Mayor of London Sadiq Khan's strategy and commitments on transport. We run the day-to-day operation of the Capital's public transport network. Our remit includes (among other things) the Tube, buses, taxis, river services, over-ground rail, DLR, trams, walking and cycling. We also manage London's main roads and are responsible for the congestion charge. No other city is as recognised by its transport system as London. Its red buses, black cabs and Tube trains are known the world over. Every day more than 31 million journeys are made across our network. We do all we can to keep the city moving, working and growing and to make life in our city better.
Skills and Experise Offered: TfL operates one of the most complex integrated transport systems in the world. We are actively engaged in and seeking opportunities for a wide range of research in transport with a particular emphasis on mitigating the impacts of mass transport on climate change and air pollution while at the same time delivering the sort of high speed, high capacity a fast growing modern city like London demands.
Particular interest in the current call focuses on LC-MG-1-3-2018: Harnessing and understanding the impacts of changes in urban mobility on policy making by city-led innovation for sustainable urban mobility as an RIA. We wish undertake research in developing and then undertaking a live trial of dynamic pricing mechanisms to manage demand for and impacts of travel in a fast growing urban setting.
