When London first applied as a contender to stage the 2012 Olympic Games, there was cynical speculation as to whether the transport infrastructure could cope should it win. During the bidding process for 2012, Transport for London, the capital’s transport strategy provider, did its bit to promote the application with buses and Stratford station displaying prominent ‘Back the Bid’ slogans.

There was a ‘can-do’ mentality among transport management on this occasion, and in this book Malcolm Batten looks at the preparation and delivery of the Olympic and Paralympic games by London’s transport providers. The transport legacy is also examined here, with previously unpublished photographs celebrating a landmark achievement in the history of London transport.
