Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 8
August 2020 asking for information about the numbers of Taxi's entering
congestion charge zone.

 

The impact of current circumstances on TfL’s resources means we are not
able to answer FOI requests readily and we ask that you please do not make
a request to us at present.

 

Answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the
attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. In
any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the
current situation and so you may wish to reconsider the timing of this
request. Please notify us as soon as possible if you would like to
withdraw your request at the current time.

 

Should you wish to proceed with the request we will aim to issue a
response by 6 October 2020 in accordance with the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 and our information access policy. We publish a substantial range
of information on our website on subjects including operational
performance, contracts, expenditure, journey data, governance and our
financial performance. This includes data which is frequently asked for in
FOI requests or other public queries. Please check
[1]http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/transpar... to see if this helps you.

 

We will publish anonymised versions of requests and responses on the
[2]www.tfl.gov.uk website. We will not publish your name and we will send

Dear J O’Riordan

 

Our ref: FOI-1014-2021/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 8
August 2020 asking for information about the numbers of Taxi's entering
congestion charge zone.

 

Before we start working on your request, we would like to clarify your
request.

 

You have asked for ‘The numbers of Taxi's entering congestion charge zone
(during hours of charging) by daily average for each month, & monthly
total of taxis that entered Cz at least once (unique)’. However you have
asked for this information for the period 01/08/20 and 31/08/20.

 

As you have asked for information ‘for each month’ but only requested one
month (August 2020) we would be grateful if you could clarify this.

 

Please note we will not commence work on your request until you have
provided clarification. If we do not hear from you by 30 October we will
consider this request closed.

 

Yours sincerely
