Per your response to 2019/17463, in addition to Bus Operators and Unite the Union, were there any other parties that were shown drafts and allowed to comment on the Loughborough University Fatigue Study before it was published in August 2019?

Besides the bus operators and the union Unite, no other external parties were invited to comment on the research and main findings before its publication. However, it was shared with the Traffic Commissioner and a member of TfL’s Safety, Sustainability & HR panel for their information prior to publication.

The report was published on 28 August 2019 in line with the commitment to share the full contents by summer. Because of this approach, Transport for London and its bus operators were also able to provide interim responses to the outcomes of the fatigue research.
