This week, Transport for London confirmed they have chosen TRUSTe as their privacy technology partner and will use TRUSTe Assessment Manager to prepare for the EU General Data Protection Regulation and implement their privacy assurance program.


Transport for London is responsible for keeping a population of 8.4 million Londoners and millions more visitors to the city on the move through key services (and iconic brands) such as the London Underground, London buses, rail services, riverboats, and Santander Cycles.


They also manage over 580km of roads, operate two road user charging schemes, and regulate the taxi and private hire trades. Everyone who visits, lives, or works in London will use at least one of these services. With increasing volumes of customer data being collected, privacy is a top priority.


James Newman, Privacy and Data Protection Manager at Transport for London (TfL) said:

I’m delighted that TRUSTe has emerged from a rigorous competitive tender process as the delivery partner for TfL’s new privacy assurance solution. TRUSTe Assessment Manager will now play a key role in TfL’s privacy assurance programme and our ongoing preparations for the implementation of the GDPR.
