Suzy Lamplugh Trust has today launched a new mobile website (www.travellondonsafely.org) that provides information to help both residents and visitors to London get about the city as easily and safely as possible this summer and beyond.
The mobile site is supported by Transport for London, as well as the Metropolitan Police Service, the City of London Police and British Transport Police. It includes advice and information on how to stay safer on the streets, on transport and at venues, as well as web links to information on how to best get around London quickly and easily – with timetables, licensed taxis and minicab numbers and live bus arrival times, tube maps and useful contact numbers.
The Trust believes that with the Olympics just weeks away, it is particularly important at this time that all relevant information is made available to the public in an easy to access format through their phones.
Linda Craig of the Trust says:
“London is a wonderful place to live in and visit and we hope as many people as possible, whether residents or tourists, will take advantage of this site to help them get out and about safely and easily and ensure they enjoy this great city to the full.”
Siwan Hayward, Deputy Director of Community Safety, Enforcement and Policing at TfL, added:
“London’s transport system is a low crime environment. TfL wants everyone to feel safe and confident as they travel around the capital. TfL is delighted that the Suzy Lamplugh Trust has developed this web-based application that can be used on a desktop PC or on a mobile phone. It provides a vital tool assisting Londoners and visitors to make safe choices about their journey, and will help TfL and its policing partners prevent anyone travelling from being a victim of crime.’ Travel London Safely is available through this link www.travellondonsafely.org or QR Code
