TfL match funding offer (2014-15)

  • Opportunity for business partnerships to bid for matched funding

  • Deliver projects which promote sustainable transport initiatives within operating area

  • Innovative solutions which deliver clear benefits for businesses

  • Must also help TfL to meet its sustainable transport targets

Funding rationale

Funding Rationale

  • Enable employers and TfL to work towards shared goals for mutual benefit

  • Support business community by funding sustainable transport projects they support

  • Assist delivery of sustainable transport initiatives, such as cycling, walking, flexible working solutions, sustainable freight, electric vehicles or clean air initiatives

  • To benefit London’s environment



  • Don’t need to be a formally recognised BID

  • Must be an organisation who works to improve conditions for members within a clearly defined geographical area

  • Measures or interventions must be in an accessible location available to all businesses, not solely for the benefit of one organisation

  • Submissions will only be considered if they provide a tangible benefit to allmembers

Key to success

Key to Success

  • Offer novel solutions to promote sustainable urban mobility, and particularly initiatives to target new audiences

  • Clearly identify an issue which needs to be addressed, and provide a compelling case as to how the proposal will resolve the problem

  • Show how members have been engaged and input into the application process, identifying issues and opportunities in the area and developing unambiguous solutions to them

Funding criteria

Funding Criteria

  • Matched funding for successful applicants, covering up to 50% of the cost of the project

  • Not an opportunity to secure funding for ongoing initiatives or business as usual activities

  • Funding will be released from January 2014, either in one instalment or as staged payments, and will need to be spent by the end of March 2015.
