Boris Johnson is supporting a project to combat the plight of young people living alone at Christmas.
Boris Johnson has been asked to act over a rise in cycling injuries in London. A new report recommends doubling funding for cycling.
London Mayor Boris Johnson has announced that some London tube and bus fares will rise by above the rate of inflation.
London Mayor Boris Johnson is being encouraged to make the streets safer for his fellow cyclists.
A London Assembly report is calling for Boris Johnson to bring about a "cycling revolution" in the capital and do more to protect people on bikes.
The report, called Gearing Up recommends doubling the funding for cycling in TfL's transport budget, introducing a "commissioner" to champion cycling and creating more space on the capital's roads.
Boris Johnson has backed black cab drivers in their bid to get more taxis on London’s streets over Christmas.
Hundreds of cabbies face a shortfall as a lack of vehicles threatens to ruin their busiest time of year.
Many rent taxis but have had plans foiled after the biggest manufacturer Manganese Bronze went into administration last month.
Its collapse came after four years of financial losses and the recall of hundreds of vehicles, leaving many drivers on a long waiting list.
The Mayor said he was “disappointed and concerned” no help had been provided for drivers by the administrators PwC.
London Mayor Boris Johnson: "It's absolutely vital that we do this for the long-term, health and efficiency of London."

Boris deserves a gold medal in cynicism. Not only does he try to bury bad news on the back of Obama's victory, he also jacks up fares at twice the rate of inflation.
He also manages to break two election pledges into the bargain, by hiking charges for bikes as well as inflation-busting fare increases. He is the Pinocchio of British politics.
Transport for London said the Mayor has ensured that concessionary travel for young people, veterans and older and disabled Londoners has been protected in 2013 so that those who need it most will continue to travel for free or at a discounted rate.
Cash fares rise by a minimum of 10p because TfL doesn't accept 5p coins.

Earlier this week, Boris Johnson rightly received plaudits for his support for a living wage in the capital. His position on public transport is in stark contrast.
By putting fares up above inflation, he is hitting hard-pressed families in the pocket simply for travelling to work.

Before the end of the year I will spell out further investment on the transport network that will help us to provide faster, more frequent and reliable journeys for Londoners, which is crucial to the economic development and growth that is so vital to our great city.
This fares package is hugely important to our millions of passengers and I am very pleased to have secured nearly £100 million that will help to keep fares as low as possible, and protect the important concessions that we offer the most vulnerable Londoners.
