Planning our future mobility network

The City of London and its partners at London Transit and the Middlesex London Health Unit are developing a long-term plan to prepare London's mobility system for change & growth expected from now, to 2050. A Mobility Master Plan serves as a roadmap for improving transportation and mobility enhance quality of life, support economic development and create a more sustainable and resilient community. The plan will include various modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, public transit, private vehicles, and emerging forms of mobility like ride-sharing and electric scooters.

Current feedback opportunity:

The City of London is seeking feedback on Policies and Actions currently in development for the Mobility Master Plan. Check out the videos below at your own convenience, and consider completing a Feedback Form to share your thoughts! Submissions will be accepted until September 2024. Any input provided after this date, will be reviewed but may have reduced potential to influence the study.

There is a Feedback Form for each Area of Focus. Please click on any of the videos below to access the Feedback Form you want to complete. 

What are Policies and Actions

Policies are formal guidelines that will guide decision-making in the future and actions are specific tasks for the City and its partners to undertake. ​Both Policies and Actions play a powerful role in shaping London’s mobility system, influencing where, how, when and why future projects get implemented and how the mobility system is used. ​They are also essential to meeting our new mode share target and providing the supports necessary for people to use more sustainable mobility options for some of their daily trips.

Areas of focus

​Policies and Actions have been split into the 8 Areas of Focus. Each Area of Focus includes a short video that explains what we hope to achieve between now and 2050 (Goals)and how we can achieve them (Policies and Actions).

Many Policies and Actions support multiple Areas of Focus, but they are only listed under the most related category. Policies and Actions included in the videos below are examples and should not be considered final or complete. The full list of Policies and Actions is extensive and still in development.

Vision and Guiding Principles 

Londoners expressed strong support for transportation and mobility options that are environmentally sustainable, reliable and provide more convenient access to people, places, and services. Londoners have also expressed the importance of transportation being affordable and developing an MMP that furthers safety and comfort for all residents and users of the mobility system. These insights have helped shape our Vision and Guiding Principles for the Mobility Master Plan.

In 2050, Londoners of all identities, abilities and means will have viable mobility options to allow them to move throughout the city safely and efficiently. The movement of people and goods will be environmentally sustainable, affordable, and supportive of economic growth and development.

The Mobility Master Plan is being developed with the following Guiding Principles:

  • Environmentally sustainable: Take bold action to address climate change and design and move in ways that protect and enhance the natural environment.
  • Financially sustainable: Ensure mobility and its infrastructure is affordable for current and future generations.
  • Equitable: Recognize diverse mobility needs and embed equity into decision making to enable everyone to move through the city.
  • Healthy and safe: Promote and protect the physical, mental and social wellbeing of all and encourage active living.
  • Integrated, connected and efficient: Strengthen community and the economy with better access to people, places, goods and services as London grows.

What we’ve heard 

The presentation linked below is a recording of a Community Conversation that took place in 2022. It provides an overview of London's unique needs and community feedback received during Phase 1 of the Mobility Master Plan engagement.

Recent News & Reports

Needs and Opportunities Report

The purpose of a Needs and Opportunities Report is to outline key mobility needs and opportunities in London based on analysis of London’s land use, population, employment and mobility trends, as well as policy direction and broader societal conditions. The report includes a comprehensive overview of the current mobility system in London, with a focus on identifying key trends, issues and constraints. It concludes with a summary of the key needs and opportunities identified throughout this phase of the study.

City Sets Mode Share Target

 In April 2024, London City Council approved a mode share target for the Mobility Master Plan which sets a goal to increase the percentage of trips Londoners take using active modes of transportation and transit by 2050. The new mode share target – to be reviewed at least every four years and adjusted appropriately – would plan for an increase in the current walk, cycle, transit portion from 23% to 32.5% or greater and a decrease in the percentage of personal vehicle driving trips from 61% down to 52.5%. 

Draft Evaluation Framework

The Mobility Master Plan will provide short and long-term infrastructure project recommendations through to 2050. All transportation related infrastructure projects will be evaluated as part of the Mobility Master Plan process to identify priority networks for infrastructure improvements across all modes. A draft project evaluation framework has been developed based on the guiding principles which were approved by Council in December 2022 based on community consultation.

Phase 1 Consultation Report

Various communication and engagement activities were conducted as part of Phase 1 to build awareness of the study and invite people to share their experiences with mobility in London. The Phase 1 Consultation Report provides an overview of feedback collected about what the community cares about, uses, has challenges with and wants out of a future transportation and mobility system.
