TfL is committed to delivering the Mayor’s Transport Strategy. A major ambition of this is to ensure 80% of journeys are made by sustainable modes (public transport, walking and cycling) by 2041, compared to 64% today. Against this background, the presentation will consider the work being carried out by TfL to improve public transport for everyone, including disabled people.  The strategy includes developing a safe and healthy travelling environment, investment in step free access to public transport and a range of assisted travel services.

Anne McMeel chairs the Audit and Assurance Committee of the TFL Board and serves on its Finance Committee and its Customer Services and Operational Performance Committee. She is also a Non-Executive Director on the Crossrail Board and at the MoD. Anne is a Member of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy and has held posts at the former Greater London Council, Inner London Education Authority and the London Borough of Enfield before becoming the Director of Finance at the London Borough of Sutton. In 2001 she joined the newly created GLA as its first Director of Finance and Performance before moving to the Metropolitan Police Service in 2007 as its Director of Resources until 2012. Her current activities include non-executive positions on the Keech Hospice Care Board and the Arts Council Performance and Audit Committee.

Natasha Healey is responsible at TFL for improving services for disabled and older customers. She has previously worked in TfL’s Innovation and Strategy team, looking at how to improve TfL’s services for customers across London. Natasha also has also worked with a diverse range of public sector organisations to improve customer experience whilst at KPMG.
