Dear Mr Sullivan

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1040-1718        

 

Thank you for your email received by us on 01 August 2017 asking for
information about accident statistics involving TfL buses and cyclists.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.  I can
confirm that we hold the information you require. You asked for:

 

“Serious and Slight accidents involving TfL buses and cyclist over the
last five years, sorted by year please. Or the last five years of data
that is held.”

 

Accidents involving TfL buses are recorded by the Police in the combined
category bus and coach, this is defined by the Department of Transports
STATS20 guide Instructions for the Completion of Road Accident Reports.
Our personal injury database is therefore unable to provide these numbers.

 

Please see a table below showing serious and slight collisions involving a
bus or coach and a pedal cycle.  Note that the cyclist may not have been
injured. The data is for the last five years to the end of November 2016. 
All the 2016 numbers are provisional and are subject to change.

 

Serious and slight collisions involving a bus or coach and a pedal cycle
December 2011 to end November 2016 provisional

The 2016 data will be published once its available.

to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Dear FOI,

If i'm correct regarding your response, Transport for London does not hold accident statistics involving TfL buses and cyclists, this is held by the Police in a combined category Coach and Bus.
The data you have provided, is this Police Coach and Bus combined data ?

Yours sincerely,

Michael Sullivan
