TfL appoints Mike Brown as London’s transport commissioner

Brown has been TfL’s managing director of London Underground and rail since 2010, where he has overseen record performance of the Tube, DLR and London Overground alongside the modernisation of the network and customer service. 

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said: “I’m delighted to confirm Mike Brown as London’s new Transport Commissioner. Under Mike’s leadership, we’ve seen record numbers of customers carried on our Tube, DLR and London Overground networks and Tube delays have fallen by well over 40% since 2010. He brings decades of service, experience and leadership to the role and is the right person to lead the next wave of modernisation and improvement at TfL, to ensure London continues to grow and prosper to the benefit of the whole country.” 

Mike Brown said: “As Commissioner, my priorities will be the continuing modernisation of the Capital’s transport networks, including the upgrade of the Tube, more fast, frequent, metro-style rail services, the delivery of Crossrail and Crossrail 2. 

“I’m also determined that, in delivering our unprecedented £4bn Road Modernisation Plan, we keep traffic flowing, the bus network reliable and keep all Londoners, businesses and road users informed so they can plan ahead and avoid disruption.”
