The authors would like to thank all those who provided expert advice and guidance for this report, especially the members of our Advisory Group: Rachel Aldred (Reader in Transport, University of Westminster); Councillor Julian Bell (Leader, Ealing Council and Chair, London Councils, Transport and Environment Committee); Tim Bellenger (Director of Policy and Investigation, London TravelWatch); Julie Bowerman (Director, Steer); Sally Crew (Transport Policy Manager, London Borough of Southwark); Manny Hothi (Director of Policy, Trust for London); Eshwyn Prabhu (Team Leader, Spatial Planning and Transport, London Borough of Islington); Philipp Rode (Executive Director, LSE Cities); Darren Shirley (Chief Executive, Campaign for Better Transport); Lawrence Thurbin (Policy Advisor, Transport for London); and Matt Winfield (London Director, Sustrans).

We are particularly grateful to our interviewees and focus group participants, all of whom generously offered their time and expertise to the project. We would also like to thank Martin Wedderburn for his support with the methodology; Robbie Gilmore, Helen McKenzie and Diana Diaz Castro at Steer for their input and technical analysis; James Rentoul and Emma Levin at ComRes for their work on the survey; and Josh Lang and Kirsty Hoyle at Transport for All for facilitating and advising on the focus groups.

Thanks are also due to the team at Centre for London – especially to Richard Brown for helping to steer the project. The views expressed in this report are nevertheless solely those of the authors, and all errors and omissions remain our own.

This project would not have been possible without our Funder, Trust for London; our Major Sponsor, the London Borough of Southwark; and our Supporting Sponsor, Steer.
