Dear Eliyahu Gluschove-Koppel

 

Our Ref:          FOI-4258-1718 / FOI-4260-1718 / FOI-4262-1718

 

Thank you for your requests received on 24 January 2018 asking for a copy
of the iBus, London Overground, and Tram announcements.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy. I can
confirm we do hold the information you require.

 

A CD containing the requested announcements is available, please send the
postal address you would like the CD sent to FOI @ tfl.gov.uk (no spaces).
Please note that as whatdotheyknow.com is a public website you may wish to
send your address details from a private e-mail address so that it does
not appear on the website.

 

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. They were originally recorded for the iBus rollout
over a period of two years in 20 sessions. Numerous CDs and folders were
set up in this process and so unfortunately they are not all held
centrally. Some of the current iBus recordings may also be made up of
fragments that are no longer used.

 

Announcements used on the services that London Overground took over from
Abellio Greater Anglia on 31 May 2015 are not held as audio files. They
are held on a server and we access them through existing server and
rolling stock. I can confirm that we have no current plans to create any
new recordings.

 

Please also note that while access to this material will be provided to
you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, 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 some reason, please feel free 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
