Dear Transport for London,

When the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) comes into effect in April 2019, please confirm how many of TfL’s polluting buses will be hit by the £100 charge per day? What percentage of TfL’s overall active bus fleet do these buses account for, please?

Do you carry out any pollution tracking along the route? If you do track pollution levels please share these in a simple format.

Yours faithfully,

Sarangi Anand

Dear Sarangi Anand

 

Our ref: FOI-06700-2021/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 23
July 2020 asking for information about emissions of London buses

 

The impact of current circumstances on TfL’s resources means we are not
able to answer FOI/EIR requests readily and we ask that you please do not
make a request to us at present.

 

Answering FOI/EIR requests will require the use of limited resources and
the attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity.
In any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the
current situation and so you may wish to reconsider the timing of this
request. Please notify us as soon as possible if you would like to
withdraw your request at the current time.

 

Should you wish to proceed with the request we will aim to issue a
response by 20 August 2020 in accordance with the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 and our information access policy. We publish a substantial
range of information on our website on subjects including operational
performance, contracts, expenditure, journey data, governance and our
financial performance. This includes data which is frequently asked for in
FOI requests or other public queries. Please check
[1]http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/transpar... to see if this helps you.

 

We will publish anonymised versions of requests and responses on the
[2]www.tfl.gov.uk website. We will not publish your name and we will send
a copy of the response to you before it is published on our website.

 

In the meantime, if you would like to discuss this matter further, please

Dear Sarangi Anand

 

Our ref: FOI-0670-2021/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 23
July 2020 asking for information about emissions of London buses

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the
Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy. I
can confirm that we do hold the information you require.

 

All TfL buses operating in the ULEZ in central London meet or exceed Euro
VI emission standards. Euro VI is the latest emission standard for
vehicles reducing emissions of NOx by up to 95%. The buses operating in
the area are made up of zero emission (at tail pipe) buses, new Euro VI
standard buses, buses retrofitted to Euro VI standards and hybrid Euro VI
standard buses.

 

Information about the pollution levels can be found in the recently
published ULEZ 10 month report which is available here:
[1]https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/...

 

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.

 

The impact of current circumstances on TfL’s resources means we are not
able to answer FOI requests readily and we ask that you please do not make
a request to us at present.

 

Answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the
attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. In
any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the
current situation.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
