    Compulsory face coverings were reinstated amid rising concerns about the Omicron variant of Covid-19.


    Penalty notices up to £200 were issued to 536 people between 30 November and 21 December, the Mayor of London said.


    Figures showed a further 287 passengers have penalties being processed by Transport for London (TfL).


    It follows a question to the Mayor's Office from Labour Assembly member Elly Baker.


    Data revealed 21,602 people were stopped on London's transport network for not wearing a mask.


    City Hall said "most complied by getting their face covering from their bag or pocket, putting it on correctly or purchasing one from a shop".


    However, 1,038 passengers were prevented from boarding Transport for London (TfL) services and 491 people were ordered to leave services or stations.


    Mayor Sadiq Khan said: "I have consistently called for the reintroduction of legal requirements to wear face coverings on public transport and so I welcomed the government's decision on 30 November.


    "These regulations give TfL, as well as the police, powers to prevent non-compliant customers from entering stations and boarding services.


    "TfL can now issue fixed penalty notice of £200 for a first offence.
