In response to Question 2020/0012 TfL has published bus safety data for Quarter 2 and Quarter 3, but the new data is in an entirely different format and lacks the granularity of the previous 21 Quarters of published data. How is removing the name of the bus operator involved, the Borough in which it took place, the bus route and a host of important details about the victim and the mode of transport an “upgrade” that improves ”timeliness and accuracy in the long term”? When will TfL replace the Q2 and Q3 Quarterly data with data with the same format and granularity of the previous 21 Quarterly reports?

The bus safety data has since been updated, with the dataset containing all of the details mentioned.

The upgrades refer to systems and processes used to produce this report, which should mean we are able to share our data sooner in the future rather than changing the granularity of the report.
