Have travelled on the Tube, Tram, Train, DLR or the Buses lately?

Do find that Black, Asian and Minority (BAME) people are increasingly using TfL services daily?

According to a recently published article (click here) regarding BAMEClick & Read people using TfL services, the following key findings were highlighted:


35% of Londoners are from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups. The profile of BAME communities in London is much younger than that of white communities.

Higher proportions of BAME people live in deprived areas of London BAME Londoners are more likely to express concerns over safety and security (particularly after dark) than white Londoners.

Overcrowding, cost, unreliable services, and slow journey times are particular barriers to increased public transport use amongst BAME groups.

In general BAME Londoners give slightly lower overall satisfaction ratings than white Londoners for various transport modes. This pattern exists even when age is taken into account.

BAME groups express broadly the same public transport needs as the rest of the London population. These needs relate to safety, reliability, respect, customer service and access to TfL services and information.
