Description: The transport strategy for the London 2012 Games has evolved over the past seven years in response to the requirements of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the different International Sports Federations, (London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) and the key objectives developed by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and their forerunners. The transport strategy has objectives which are: a) ensure that the athletes are the top priority b) aim to achieve 100 per cent of ticketed spectators travelling to competition venues by public transport, walking or cycling c) keep London and the UK moving during the Games d) ensure that the Games are accessible from all parts of the UK e) leave a lasting, positive legacy; and f) achieve maximum value for money.

WLCost text: The costs reported (all resource) are the operational costs DfT and its Agencies have incurred specifically for the Games. They do not include the costs of 'business as usual' background infrastructure and other projects (eg national rail and London Underground capacity enhancement projects) that supported successful Games-time operations. Nor do they include capital or operational Games transport costs funded from the DCMS-led Public Sector Finance Package - the final report on those costs can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/78251/DCMS_GOE_Quarterly_Report_Q3.pdf.
