Dear Mr Ahmed

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1453-1819

 

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 28
August 2018.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. 

 

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you have requested.

 

We do not pay the drivers, they are paid by the operating company. We
tender the services out but each company has its own policies and salaries
(including incentive payments to staff).

 

You can contact the operating companies if you would like insight into
their pay/ bonus information. However, they are not subject to the FOIA
and therefore aren’t obliged to provide this information.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
