News: Knighthood for TfL commissioner Peter Hendy

Published 13 January 2013, 17:03

Peter Hendy, commissioner of transport for London since early 2006, has been knighted in the New Year Honours List for services to transport and the community, making him Sir Peter Hendy CBE.

The honour marked the culmination of one of the most satisfying years in Sir Peter’s 37-year transport career, much of it spent with Transport for London, its London Transport predecessor and in the UK capital’s transport industry.

He is widely respected for the leadership he displayed in ensuring that transport at the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics worked as smoothly as possible, that everyone was aware of what needed to be done and that teams who would work together during the games got to know each other well in advance of the event.

At the UK Bus Awards in November, he was named 2012 winner of the award for services to the bus industry, acknowledging his role in the Olympics success as well as his entire career.
