Based on your rejection of Questions 2018/2118, 2018/2119, 2018/2120 and 2019/0463, why does TfL refuse to ensure that its Corporate Governance Standard for its Surface Transport contractors is at least as good as the one a court imposed on Uber on 26th June 2018?

Safety is Transport for London’s (TfL’s) top priority, and it believes the processes set out in answers to previous Mayor’s Questions represent the best approach to ensuring the same is true of its contractors. All contractors are called to account for their safety, health and environmental performance, and this is monitored through regular performance meetings. Assurance assessments are also carried out with contractors to ensure that their safety culture and all safety management systems meet TfL’s expectations.

TfL’s contracted transport operators are also subject to national regulation on safety, and independent scrutiny from the Office of Rail and Road and/ or other relevant bodies.

TfL continues to review and improve its safety management and assurance processes as it works towards Vision Zero.
