Real research, real data, real discoveries – Inspiring stuff!

Did you know 24 million journeys happen every single day on the Transport for London (TfL) network. Every journey matters to us, and it is our Analytics Team who working with leading universities across the world, including MIT and Imperial College, make sense of that data to help us make these journeys better.

With such Big Data, for example we have the most contactless payments of any retailer in Europe, there is so much more to be discovered and that is why we have linked to the Institute of Research in Schools (IRIS) to bring real life data and research into the classroom to enable the students themselves to make discoveries no-one has before.

With the aims of inspiring more students, raising STEM aspirations and enriching the careers of teachers, IRIS have already linked school students to work with CERN data and Tim Peak on the International Space Station.
