To ask Secretary of State for Transport what measures are planned to improve public transport in London.

We have set the public transport operators two challenges. To improve every aspect of their existing services; and to achieve historic increases in capacity. To these ends we have set tough quality of service objectives; massively increased the resources available for investment; and approved the building of major new lines. And we have announced legislation designed to create the clear roads needed to run attractive bus services.
