About us

You may not have come across the Transport Friendly Society (TFS) before but we’ve been around longer than many of the so called household names.

TFS started in 1885, though it had a different and much longer name in those days. It began by providing peace of mind to bus drivers who, in exchange for a penny or two per week, knew that if they died while working on the buses, their loved ones would have some money to help them pay for essentials.

Today the Transport Friendly Society has around 19,000 members and has over £38 million invested on their behalf and is still providing that peace of mind.
Membership is open to anyone associated with passenger transport their family and friends.

We are a mutual organisation run by public transport workers for the benefit of passenger transport workers their family and friends.

For more information please see the other pages of this website, telephone our offices on 020 7833 2616 or email us using the contact us page.

From 2011...

TFS is pleased to announce that friends and family of those working in passenger transport can now join by taking out one of our savings plans.
