London Bridge station installs contactless donation point to help tackle homelessness

View original

Network Rail and TAP London, a non-profit organisation which support a coalition of homeless charities, have installed the railway’s first contactless donation point in London Bridge station to help tackle the rise of homelessness in London. According to research, London accounts for a quarter of the UK’s homeless population and around 170,000 people are officially homeless which equates to one in ever 53 Londoners. When cards are tapped, £3 are automatically donated to 22 different homelessness charities. There are already 91 contactless donation points in London but London Bridge which is the UK’s fourth busiest station is the first station to get a contactless point. There are plans for more contactless points to be installed at stations in the future.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
