Dear R Brown

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London on 17 March. You
asked for information about the impact of the removal of bendy buses from
route 507 on cyclists’ deaths and serious injuries.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act and I can confirm that TfL does hold some of the
information you require. As our services are operated by private
companies, any detailed assessment and analysis of accidents is conducted
by them. However, they do report accidents to us, so we are able to
provide the following information.

Route 507 operated articulated buses between June 2002 and June 2009. In
this period:

· no cyclist fatalities were reported involving route 507 buses

· there was one reported minor injury involving a cyclist on 4
May 2006 and no reported major injuries involving cyclists and 507 buses.

Since articulated vehicles were withdrawn in July 2009 there have been:

· no reported fatalities or major injuries to cyclists

· two reported minor injuries on 15 October 2009 and 30 September
2009.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

Yours sincerely
