In your response to Question 2019/20678 you listed 76 key performance indicators that constitute the bus network safety performance index. Why are KPIs relating to bus driver fatigue and toilet provision not on these KPIs for this index?

Transport for London (TfL’s) Bus Driver Fatigue Programme began in 2019 to address the concerns raised within the Loughborough University study entitled “Bus Driver Fatigue”.

TfL is aiming to have introduced a pan-London Fatigue Risk Management Policy with every bus operator by summer 2020. This will include the need for each operator to report and record any fatigue events. In turn, TfL is currently reviewing the way in which they measure fatigue events arising, and it is likely that they will incorporate fatigue reporting into the Safety Performance Index by December 2020.

The provision of toilets has been a focus of attention for TfL over the past year, with 42 driver facilities due to be completed and installed by 31 March 2020.
