This document should be read in conjunction with the Corporation’s Guide for 
Tenderers (Part A: Explanatory Notes - Service Requirements). Where appropriate, 
reference is made to the relevant section.
 

Service Specification for Route No. 147 - 29/03/2010 
 
1. TENDERS 
REQUIRED 
 
This document describes the service for which the Corporation requires Tenders and 
Tenderers must submit a fully compliant bid. In addition, Tenderers may wish to draw 
upon their local knowledge to submit alternative bids which offer improved value for 
money in meeting passenger needs. These might incorporate, for example, different 
timings, frequencies, route structures and / or vehicles. The Corporation will welcome 
such bids and give them careful consideration.  
 
For more information, please refer to Section 2.1 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
2. PROPOSED 
CHANGES 
 
At this time, no changes are proposed to the existing service for introduction prior to the 
commencement of the new Route Agreement for Route No. 147.  
 
Tenderers should note that there are no changes proposed as part of this Service 
Specification for Route No. 147. 
 
3. TERMINALS 
 
Route No. 147 will operate between Ilford High Road, Hainault Street and Canning 
Town Bus Station.  
 
Full details of the route to be followed, the permitted terminal workings and the available 
stands are shown at Appendix A. Tenderers should particularly note the information 
relating to the shared usage of stands, the taking of meal reliefs and the use of ferry 
vehicles. 
 
4.

Service Specification for Route No. 147 - 29/03/2010 
 
5. VEHICLE 
TYPE 
 
Please refer to Section 2.5 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
Route No. 147 is currently approved for vehicles which are a maximum of 10.1 metres 
long and 2.55 metres wide. A formal route test will be required for vehicles which 
exceed these dimensions. This will be arranged with the successful Tenderer.  
 
The service requirement set out in Section 6 assumes that dual door, double deck 
buses with a minimum capacity of 87 of which approximately 60 should be seated, will 
be used on this route. Luggage space should also be provided. 
 
Tenderers must submit proposals based on new vehicles. These must be of a low floor 
design and be accessible to wheelchairs by means of a powered ramp.  
 
Bids for both conventional diesel powered vehicles and diesel-electric hybrid 
vehicles should be submitted and separate prices for both types are required. 
 
Bids based on a mix of hybrid and conventional vehicles would be welcomed, 
subject to a minimum of 10 hybrid powered vehicles being offered for this 
route (full hybrid operation should be offered for routes with a vehicle 
requirement of less than 10). 

 
Tenderers should refer to the vehicle design (including accessibility) features contained 
in Schedule II to Annex B of the Framework Agreement and Section 2 Part B of the 
Master ITT (Version 2 issued June 2005). 
 
 
Tenderers may also submit bids based on using existing vehicles. Tenderers are 
asked to specify what refurbishment would be carried out on existing buses and the 
expected timescale of those works. See Master ITT (Version 2 issued June 2005).

Service Specification for Route No. 147 - 29/03/2010 
 
6. FREQUENCIES 
 
The level of service (e.g. every 15 minutes) required by the Corporation is described in 
terms of the interval between departures. Whilst a completely regular service at the 
specified frequency should be possible at most times, occasionally a bus may be 
timetabled to depart up to five minutes earlier or later than the regular time. 
 
Tenderers should note that when the specified frequency changes (e.g. between the 
peak and midday periods), the scheduled interval between buses should never be 
greater than that provided by the lower of the two frequencies AT ANY POINT ON 
THE ROUTE. 
 
Tenderers should note that unless otherwise stated all journeys should operate 
between the terminal points defined in each direction.

MINIMUM PERFORMANCE STANDARDS 
 
Please refer to Section 2.7 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
Tenderers should note that the objective of the Operator of Route No. 147 shall be to 
operate all scheduled mileage and adhere fully  to the published timetable. The 
Operator must use its best endeavours to achieve this. 
 
The minimum standards of acceptable performance for Route No. 147 shall be: 
 
Average Excess Wait Time: 
 
No more than 1.00 minutes 
Minimum Operated Mileage: 
 
No less than   98.00% 
 
or as notified by the Corporation from time to time. The Operator will be required to 
achieve or better the standards. 
 
QSI Thresholds  
 
The QSI threshold is the standard of performance to be achieved by the operator in 
order to qualify for an automatic contract extension (in accordance with Schedule IX of 
the Framework Agreement). 
 
Average Excess Wait Time Threshold = 0.85 minutes 
 
Summary of proposed QSI coverage: Route No. 147 
 
Note: While London Buses undertakes to carry out QSI surveys at the times and 
locations specified below, it may prove impossible to rearrange a survey cancelled or 
nullified at short notice.

Service Specification for Route No. 147 - 29/03/2010 
 
8. RUNNING 
TIMES 
 
The current timetable for Route No. 147 can be viewed by prospective Tenderers on 
Caesar. Attention is drawn to the variations in running times at different times of the 
day. Please refer to Section 2.8 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers for further 
information. 
 
Tenderers should carefully check the existing running times to ensure that they are 
appropriate in present traffic conditions. Tenderers should particularly check the existing 
running times for the Mondays to Fridays afternoon interpeak, PM peak and early 
evening.  
 
When reviewing existing, and devising new, running times Tenderers should refer to: 
 
•  the minimum performance standards for Route No. 147 in Section 7 above; 
•  the historical performance data provided in Section 1 Part B of the introduction to 
this ITT; 
the paragraph in Section 12 referring to the proposed extension of the Cashless 
Boarding zone throughout the whole of the London area. 
 
Tenderers may consider if school summer holiday schedules, incorporating running 
time reductions, are desirable for this route. In this event, schedules and costs must be 
submitted separately. 
 
9. LAYOVERS 
 
Under normal circumstances, layover time on stands and at bus stations should be 
restricted to that required to provide a reliable service. Longer layovers for any other 
purpose may only be taken with the permission of the Corporation. 
 
10. TIMING 
CONSTRAINTS 
 
Route No. 147 should interwork with other bus services where possible. 
 
Tenderers submitting bids should bear this requirement in mind when compiling 
schedules. This requirement will be negotiated with the successful Tenderer for this 
route to ensure that optimal interworking/separation is delivered within its schedules. 
 
10

Service Specification for Route No. 147 - 29/03/2010 
 
11. CONTROL 
STRATEGY 
 
Route No. 147 can suffer from the effects of traffic congestion, making some form of 
route control essential in order to achieve or better the minimum performance 
standards for this route. 
 
Tenderers should submit proposals on the control strategy they intend to adopt and 
the type of control they would intend to use by completing the form provided in 
Section 3: Part 7 of this ITT. The cost of this control should be included within the 
main Tender price. 
 
Tenderers should also indicate how they intend to facilitate driver changeovers and 
meal reliefs for this route.  
 
Further information is provided in Section 2.11 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
12. OPERATIONAL 
CONSIDERATIONS 
 
Tenderers should note the following operating considerations affecting Route No. 147: 
 
•  Football matches at West Ham United F.C. in Upton Park can cause severe traffic 
congestion in the area (Barking Road). 
•  Tenderers should be aware of heavy and unpredictable traffic delays in the Barking 
Road, Canning Town Flyover area especially at peak times.  
•  The use of 10.5 metre vehicles is not possible in Little Ilford due to highway 
constraints. 
 
Tenderers should also note the following factors/events which may have an impact on 
Route No. 147 in the foreseeable future: 
 
•  Route No. 147 may be affected by changes to the road layout between Canning 
Town and Custom House proposed as part of the Canning Town Masterplan ‘Area 3’ 
regeneration. Timescales are not currently known.  
•  The East London Transit will be a bus-based system. The first stage commenced 
on 20th February 2010 and runs between Ilford, Barking and Dagenham Dock 
Station. A second stage will extend bus services into the Barking Riverside 
Development. 
•  It is anticipated that Cashless Boarding will be extended throughout London at 
some stage during the lifetime of this contract. This is expected to lead to 
significant savings in running and recovery times to bus routes, and, 
therefore,
  potential resource (cycle time and PVR) savings are expected. 
Tenderers are required to identify and submit the level of savings per 
vehicle that could be achieved by reducing peak vehicle requirement, and/or 
how reliability targets could be revised when the Scheme is introduced.
 
 
The above factors have been included to assist Tenderers and represents the 
information currently available to the Corporation. Tenderers should make their own 
enquiries about events which may impact upon the route and should form their own 
views about their likely effect upon it. 
 
11

Service Specification for Route No. 147 - 29/03/2010 
 
13. STOPPING 
ARRANGEMENTS 
 
Buses operating on Route No. 147 must serve all stops on the line of route designated 
for the route.  
 
14.

or representation as to accuracy is given; 
•  out of service stand workings have not been measured and are not included within 
the above measurements; 
•  if alternative or additional measurements are used by the Tenderer, these must be 
stated in the tender submission; 
•  point to point measurements pertaining to recognised curtailment points or alternative 
terminals will be agreed with the successful Tenderer once the contract has been 
awarded. 
 
15. VEHICLE 
LIVERY 
 
All vehicles to be used on Route No. 147 from the commencement of the new Route 
Agreement must be in a livery that is exclusively Corporation red. The paint should be 
matched accurately to the colour as defined by the following manufacturer’s 
specifications: 
 
 
 
ICI London Bus Red P498 FPF 3 
 
Other manufacturers should also be able to produce this specification from the ICI 
colour chart. 
 
This requirement does not include the lower panels which may be in a different 
colour but which shall not exceed 50cm in height, or the rooftop which should be 
painted white so as to reduce temperatures inside the vehicle during the summer 
months. 
 
The positioning and size of Operators’ logos are to be agreed between the Operator 
and the Corporation and, where possible, these should be above the front doors on 
the nearside of the vehicles and above the drivers’ offside cab windows. 
 
All livery proposals must be submitted to the Contracts Tendering Manager for 
approval.
