Dear Ms Smith

 

TfL Ref: 1582-1920

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 26
August 2019 asking for information about bus route 415.

 

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.  You asked:

 

Route 415 Routemaster:

 

Can you confirm you are aware that route master buses are being used on
route 415. Did TfL grant permission if so on what grounds and can we
please see the communication?

 

We can confirm that we have agreed for New Routemasters (NRMs) to be used
on bus route 415.  With effect from 31 August the route is fully NRM
operated.

 

Please see attached email from TfL to Abellio dated 19 July 2018.  Please
note that the 24 November 2018 change referred to in the email did not
occur until 31 August 2019 and involved 4 buses not 3.

 

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data
Protection legislation some personal data has been removed, as required by
section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal
data would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first
principle which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and
lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when
the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not
satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.

 

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
