LONDONERS can now benefit from a partnership between TfL and international directories publisher Yell.

A new 16-page travel guide has been introduced to the front of London Yellow Pages directories.

The comprehensive, easy to use guide features local travel information, including practical information on the Congestion Charge, Oyster card, taxi and Dial-a-Ride services and cycling in London.

It also features bus services and maps, tube map, trams and river service information and useful contact details.

The Harrow, Uxbridge and Wembley Yellow Pages directory was distributed to local addresses in September and 12 more editions featuring the new travel guide will be delivered across the London area by March next year - more than three million directories in total.

Chris Townsend, director of group marketing at Transport for London, said: "For the first time Londoners will be able to access full print travel information from TfL in their Yellow Pages directory.

"This new service complements TfL's already extensive range of customer travel information sources, which include the online Journey Planner, text message alerts and TfL's travel information line."

Paul Plant, Yell's head of product development and innovation, said: "Yellow Pages is a comprehensive source of business and local information for Londoners, which is continually being updated.

"Around 50 per cent of Londoners use public transport at least once a week, so the new travel guide will be really useful and help to ensure that Yellow Pages continues to play an important role in London life."
