Information for enthusiasts taking video/photographs at stations

Mark Johnson made this Freedom of Information request to Greater London Authority

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Greater London Authority.

Dear Greater London Authority,

I’ve got questions in relation to transport enthusiasts taking video/photographs on the TfL Network.

Do transport enthusiasts require a permit to take photograph/video on the TfL network?

Are there any statements from the Mayor of London allowing transport enthusiasts to take video/photograph on the TfL network?

Are transport enthusiasts allowed to take photograph/video at National Rail stations which are covered under the Oyster/Travelcard zones?

Does the TfL staff (Underground, Buses, DLR, Tramlink, Overground and TfL Rail/Elizabeth Line and contractors such as security guards, cleaners etc) have any powers to prohibit transport enthusiasts to take photo/video at stations such as terrorism?

Are there any laws, byelaws and regulations which restrict transport enthusiasts taking video/photographs on the TfL network and railway stations serving National Rail services under the Oyster/Travelcard zones?

Is there any guidance for TfL staff on dealing with transport enthusiasts, so they can keep disputes to a minimum?

Yours faithfully,

Mark Johnson

Mayor of London, Greater London Authority

Dear Mr Johnson

Thank you for your request for information. The Greater London Authority
(GLA) does not hold the information you have requested. Transport for
London (TfL) is the Mayor's transport authority and is responsible for
implementing the Mayor's Transport Strategy, and for the day-to-day
operational running of transport services. You may wish to send a further
request to TfL at [email address].

Yours sincerely

Paul Robinson
Information Governance Officer

If you are unhappy with the way the GLA has handled your request, you may
complain using the GLA's FOI complaints and internal review procedure,
