The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I would like to request a copy of the digital sound files of the new announcements regarding the requirement to wear face coverings on public transport used as part of the iBus system on buses operated for London Buses.

I believe there are only a small number of such announcements and so am happy to receive them via email.

Yours faithfully,

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 11 October 2020. I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

The Government has announced a series of measures to tackle the Coronavirus. It is essential for London, and in particular for all critical workers, that we continue to provide a safe transport network that enables them to make the journeys they need to.

Please notify us as soon as possible if you would like to withdraw your request at the current time.
