Detailed Contact Information for each Managing Director of any Bus Company contracted by TfL's London Bus Services Limited

The request was partially successful.

Dear Transport for London,

In Mayor's Question Time Question No. 2017/1688, the Mayor stated that in relation to Bus Safety, "the Managing Directors are ultimately accountable for safety."

Since we know from Mayor's Question Time Question No. 2016/0627 that London Bus Services Limited (LBSL) "does not operate vehicles or services on the London Bus network" and as "the tendering authority, there is no legal requirement for LBSL to hold an operator's licence" kindly provide me with the name, postal address, email address and contact telephone number for each Managing Director of any Bus Company holding an operator's licence and presently contracted by LBSL.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Kearney

Other contact details for individuals have not been provided in accordance

of this personal data would be a breach of the DPA, specifically the first
principle of the DPA which requires all processing of personal data to be
fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal
information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed
and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions of Schedule 2 of the Data
Protection Act which would make the processing ‘fair’.
