Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I have browsed this website many times looking for a downloadable file version of all the announcements that are on the buses. As I can’t find them, may I request a copy of a CD with all the announcements on it, or if possible, a zip file to download.

Please let me know where to send my address and/or email address.

Yours faithfully,

Jay Collins

Dear Jay Collins

 

TfL Ref: 2572-2122

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 8
February 2022 asking for information about our IBus announcements.

 

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

I can confirm that we hold the information you require. Your email account
you provided has now been added to the permissions list to access the
audio recordings we are permitted to release, and you should now have an
email with a link enabling you to access the folder (please check your
spam folder if this is not visible).

Upon opening the link you will be asked to verify your account which will
generate a code to be send to your email address which is only valid for
15 minutes (you may need to check your spam folder). Once that code is
entered you will have access to the relevant files which can then be
downloaded. Should you encounter any difficulty with this please
contact [1][email address].

 

It should be noted that the iBus announcements are recorded as fragments.
As a result, some announcements would not feature in full as the full
announcement would just be made up of two or more fragments that have
already been recorded.  The way the announcements are recorded means that
we cannot provide them for specific routes as requested.

Please note that while access to the announcements has been provided to
you under the Freedom of Information Act, you are not granted any rights
to any of the intellectual property that exists in it or granted any
permission to make secondary uses of it. TfL owns all intellectual
property (including, without limitation, copyright) in the material
supplied and will defend such rights.

If you wish to make any secondary use of the material provided, you must
first obtain the consent of TfL (which may be withheld) and, if consent is
granted, a fee may be charged, in accordance with the terms of the Reuse
of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

Yours sincerely,

Sara Thomas
FOI Case Officer
FOI Case Management Team

Dear FOI,

I have received all the announcements, Thank you.

I just can't seem to find the fragment where it says ' To ' in-between the bus number and bus destination. Is there any way to attach this? If not, that's ok.

Once again, thanks for the announcements

Yours sincerely,

Jay Collins
