How many bus lanes have boroughs opened up to taxis since May 2016 and what percentage of Bus Lane length on the borough roads does that equates to?

Transport for London (TfL) does not have responsibility for borough roads and therefore does not hold this information in detail. While TfL does monitor changes made to traffic orders across London in order to update its Bus Lane database, the database does not include dates from when taxi access was granted. Accordingly, it is not possible to answer this question accurately.

The TfL Commissioner has previously written to boroughs regarding taxi considerations, including to request access to bus lanes for taxis.
