TfL issue £164,600 in fines for ignoring mask rules

Transport for London have issued fines to 823 people for ignoring rules on face coverings across its transport network.

That covers a two week period from 30th November 30 to 14th December 2021.

Of 21,602 people stopped, most agreed to wear a mask or were exempt from wearing.

Plan B

Masks are now compulsory nationwide on public transport, though London’s conditions of carriage on TfL services did not remove the requirement for a mask before it was adopted nationwide at the end of last year.

Enforcement on rail networks such as Southeastern is dependent on British Transport Police – of which there are few.

TfL have 500 enforcement officers though, and at least in my experience are pretty rare to see.

The figures were obtained by Labour Assembly member Elly Baker in a question to the Mayor’s Office.


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
