FOI, London Buses Limited

Dear Mr Duff

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1066-1819

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 16
July 2018 asking for information about buses.

 

Your request has been processed in accordance with the requirements of the
Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we do not hold the information you requested. You asked:

 

I would like to know what type of suspension is in use on the New bus for
London as well as the Volvo  Plaxton President? Would you be able to
provide technical diagrams or pictures which show how the suspensions work
or where they lay within the bus? Could provide the maintenance history
for the following buses which are part of Metroline fleet:

LX04UXG

LR52BMY

LR52 BLK

 

We do not hold information on suspension systems used on buses so you
would need to contact the manufacturers or visit their websites:

I would also like to know when a bus contract ends with one operator do
the driver on that route simply transfer working for the new bus company?

 

The transfer of drivers when a route changes operator depends on the
Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment (TUPE) arrangements. You
can view related regulations at the following website:
