Authority To Operate
The London Transit Commission is a corporate body with the powers, rights and privileges vested in it by the City of London Act (Bylaw A-6377-206).
The Commission consists of five members appointed by the Municipal Council of the Corporation of the City of London.
Two or three members of the Commission, as determined by the Council, shall be members of the Council and shall hold office during their term of office on the Council.
Agent of the Corporation
The Commission is the agent of the City of London responsible for the operation, repair, control and management of the local transportation system of the municipality on behalf of the City of London. This includes conventional transit and transportation for the physically disabled.
The Commission and the Council shall consult regularly on local transportation system policy and on the general administration and affairs of the Commission in relation to general municipal policy and the administration and affairs of the City of London.
If, despite the consultation, there emerges a difference of opinion between the Commission and the Council concerning the course of policy to be followed, the Council may by resolution give to the Commission a directive concerning the local transportation system policy of the Commission in specific terms and applicable for a specified period, and the Commission shall comply with the directive.
