London,EN,UK -The Guardian, by Gwyn Topham -13 August 2014: -- The driving force for TfL is the same as it was for the Victorians – how can more people be moved more efficiently through the capital’s jumbled streets? ... When 19th-century engineers decided their new-fangled locomotives could be driven underground beneath London's crowded streets, they began a tradition for technological innovation that the capital's transport system has never lost... Today the cutting edge has moved from steam to cyber, but the driving force is the same as it was for the Victorians – how can more people be moved more quickly and efficiently through the capital's jumbled, crowded streets? ... At the heart of this is no nimble tech startup, but the capital's transport authority, Transport for London, which vaunts its record as an innovator in the field with some justice, according to the experts propose, amidst others: :

* Contactless payments 

* Access to bus seating 

* Automatic operation 

* Open data 

* Managing the traffic 

* Managing the pedestrians
