In your response to Question 2020/0745, you stated “Transport for London (TfL) is aware of a small number of locations where facilities for drivers to take breaks are not suitable.” Please identify the Bus Route involved and the reasons why these locations are designated “not suitable”.

Transport for London (TfL) is currently working with its bus operators and the union, Unite, to identify the most pressing areas for suitable facilities where drivers can take a break. I have asked that TfL provide you with an update on this work once it has been finalised.

TfL has already improved working conditions for bus drivers, with many new prioritised bus driver toilets near the end of under-served routes.
