The Mayor recently announced a consultation to trial an app-based demand responsive bus service with no fixed route or schedule. Will the drivers be required to undertake a topological Knowledge test or assessment or will they be relying on satellite navigation?

The drivers of this 12-month small-scale demand responsive bus trial will be using navigational equipment. Through the recruitment process and training programme, Transport for London will ensure they also have good geographical knowledge of Sutton.
