The 2005-2009 time period used as a baseline in the Transport for London (TfL) Bus Safety Scorecard is set by the Department for Transport (DfT) and not by TfL.

This was established in May 2011, when the DfT announced a new national baseline for analysing road safety statistics as part of its Strategic Framework for Road Safety, which is based on the average casualty figures from 2005 to 2009.
