Transport for London to deliver Fors into private hands

  • 02 May 2014
  • By Hayley Pink

Transport for London (TfL) is to step away from the day-to-day running of the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (Fors) and bring in a private party on a commercial basis by the end of the year, in a move that suggests hauliers will soon face a fee to be part of the initiative.

Fors has been put out to tender, with the successful bidder set to operate the scheme for up to seven years via a concession contract, with TfL providing assistance to help develop it.

TfL made the decision to hand over the scheme following the increasing take-up of Fors from operators – more than 168,000 vehicles are now accredited – and demand from outside London.

In regards to charging for the scheme, a TfL spokesman said: “TfL is not deciding the commercial model for the future of Fors – that will be a matter for the bidders.”
