In response to Question 2016/3564, you stated “Although TfL is not given copies of operator investigations into serious incidents on the network, it is provided with the outcomes of these inquiries so it can ensure they are appropriately considered and dealt with.” Do you think TfL should be receiving copies of bus operator investigations in line with your Vision Zero Programme?

Eradicating deaths and serious injuries on London’s roads remains a priority.

In July 2017, Transport for London (TfL) changed the way Notification and Investigation of Major Incidents are reviewed. A more in-depth form is now completed by each of the operators. Copies of these investigation forms are shared with TfL which allows it to have a better understanding of the root causes of incidents.

TfL, working collaboratively with bus operators, has also introduced joint site visits following serious incidents. Operators have been provided with dedicated TfL Health & Safety Executive managers to liaise with and improve communications.
