Dear Mr Kearney

 

Both your request for internal review and your original FOI request have
been answered. There are three separate request threads on What Do They
Know where you asked for essentially the same information on 3 September
2013. We sent the response to all 3 threads, but the site has only
published it on one request thread.

 

The original request was answered on 14 February.

The outcome of your internal review was sent to you on 10 June.

[2]https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

 

The quarterly bus safety data is published on our website at the link
below:

Dear Transport for London,

For the avoidance of doubt, I would like precisely the information I requested from you in September 2013.

I would like to request updated TfL bus collision data for 2012/13
and 2013/14 YTD. For the avoidance of doubt, this a request for an
update to the same data set TfL provided in TfL Ref: 1931-1212,
including a cover sheet showing an annual summary chart updated to
show 2012/13 and 2013/14 YTD data plus detailed spreadsheets for
2012/13 and 2013/14 YTD showing (1) Date of accident; (2) Operator
name
; 
(3) Summary details of the accident (i.e., pedestrian,
cyclist,
 vehicle, other) and (4) London Borough where accident
occurred

The KSI data provided on your site every quarter is only a subset of the update to the data that I am requesting. Kindly provide me the update to TfL Ref: 1913-1212.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Kearney (@comadad)

Dear Guild Simon,

I would like to request updated TfL bus collision data for 2012/13
and 2013/14 YTD. For the avoidance of doubt, this a request for an
update to the same data set TfL provided in TfL Ref: 1931-1212,
including a cover sheet showing an annual summary chart updated to
show 2012/13 and 2013/14 YTD data plus detailed spreadsheets for
2012/13 and 2013/14 YTD showing (1) Date of accident; (2) Operator
name
; 
(3) Summary details of the accident (i.e., pedestrian,
cyclist,
 vehicle, other) and (4) London Borough where accident
occurred.

TfL has not provided an any update to the total road collisions involving TfL Buses that I have requested since September 2013 and the information that you are trying to say is a response is only a small subset of the data that I have requested.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Kearney

Guild Simon, Transport for London

Dear Mr Kearney,

I have reviewed the spreadsheet that we provided to you on 14 February and it does appear to answer your request for information: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

The spreadsheet titled "Bus Collision Data" presents the information by date, financial year, operator name, collision incident description, injury result description and borough. If you are experiencing difficulty downloading or opening the spreadsheet, or if you cannot see the columns or the 2138 rows of data contained within it, please let me know and I will try and provide it in alternative format.

The spreadsheet presents the data that you have requested in the same format as our response to FOI-1919-1213 using the criteria you specified. If there are other data that you believe should have been provided can you please describe that data.

We now publish bus safety data in even greater detail on our website at http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publicat...

Yours Sincerely

Simon Guild
Information Access Manager
