Transport for London has agreed to routinely publish the number of people killed and seriously injured in incidents involving buses following calls from the Conservative group on the London Assembly.
Last month Assembly Member Richard Tracey published figures obtained under Freedom of Information rules which showed that 1,889 people were killed or seriously injured in such incidents over the last five years.
At the time he called on TfL bosses to publish the figures each quarter and urged them to name and shame the worst performing bus operators.
Following a meeting between Mr Tracey and Mike Weston, Director of Buses at TfL, the capital’s transport agency has agreed to publish the figures from April 2014.
In a letter to Mr Tracey, TfL confirmed the statistics “will be broken down by borough, bus operator and route.”
It has also undertaken to “review” data covering 2008 to 2013 to help identify any accidental hot spots.
Mr Tracey described TfL’s undertakings as “a very positive step” and said transparency over the number of incidents “is a vital first step in making London’s roads safer and saving lives.”
