105 TFL staff have died of Covid since 2020

More than 100 members of Transport for London (TfL) staff have died of Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic, new figures have revealed.

A total of 105 TfL employees died of Covid between March 2020 and May 2022, including 23 members of staff on the Tube network and 75 on the bus network.

Two employees at TfL’s head office also died of Covid while five members of partner organisations such as cleaning or security staff also sadly died of the virus.

Black and Asian members of staff made up almost 60 per cent of all Covid deaths on the TfL network, men made up 100 of the 105 deaths.

The figures were revealed by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan following a written question from Conservative London Assembly Member Keith Prince.

In his response to Mr Prince’s question, Mr Khan said: “Every death in service is taken very seriously by TfL.

“TfL has put in place a range of additional support for families and colleagues where there has been a bereavement.”

Last year, TfL unveiled plans for a permanent memorial to London’s transport workers who have died during the pandemic.

The memorial is set to open in Aldgate this summer.
