Dear Transport for London,

Good evening all. For a few years TFL route 465 (Dorking to Kingston) was operated by Arriva Surrey & West Sussex from their Horsham (Warnham) depot. For the entire period that Arriva operated it i would like to request under the FOI Act copies of all working timetables and running boards for this service. Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

By ‘running boards’ he means the sheet detailing the buses workings for the day, normally this should be obtained from the bus operator (which in this case is Arriva) but from my previous experiences they do not give out any operations documents

Hope this helps, Matthew

Thanks for your comment. Yes that is indeed what i meant but at least those working timetables they provided do have running numbers. I highly doubt Arriva would still have this information as it is from like 9/10/11 years ago and they have shut down most of their depots in this area. And yes even if they did have it they probably wouldn't give it out as they are a private company.
