TfL spent £425million in October then, with the majority of the money going on bus contract payments. The numbers in the table above are the top amounts, in descending order.
It appears that the bus contract payments are going through other subsidiary companies such as Stagecoach and Arriva. Understandably, as
They also spent around £5million on track maintenance, which to me seems a little low given that the Northern line seems to have engineering work every other day. A closer look at the detailed accounts shows that a lot of repairs are subcontracted, and individual component repairs are documented separately on the extended spreadsheet.
£5million was also spent on transportation costs, which could be for maintenance work. However, you’d think that if they had the tube right there… they’d just use that… right? Apparently not.
Other big costs not listed on the small list above, but can be seen in the Google doc include electricity, uniforms for staff, security and CCTV cameras.
£5970 was spent on graffiti removal, and there were 112 separate accounts for legal fees. One of the bills reached a whopping £22,000.
All of the information for TfL monthly spends can be found on their website.
