Dear Mr Ahmed

 

TfL Ref: 2097-1819

 

Thank you for your email received by us on 10 November 2018 asking for
information about bus drivers who hold TfL staff passes.

 

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:

 

which transport services are bus drivers who hold TfL staff pass are able
to use as part of the staff pass scheme? Please list.

 

Are they allowed to use C2C, Overground? Rails within zone 1-6?

 

The majority of Bus Drivers who work for private bus companies on
Transport for London (TfL) routes will hold a Bus Operator pass; these
passes have serial numbers beginning with 003. Such passes can be used on
TfL services including London Underground, London Overground, TfL Rail,
Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and London Buses with the TfL Roundel
visible. They are not valid on National Rail services.

 

There are some bus drivers who transferred from London Transport who hold
TfL Staff Passes, these passes have serial numbers beginning with 001. The
passes can be used on TfL services including London Underground, London
Overground, TfL Rail, DLR and London Buses featuring the TfL Roundel. They
can also be used on a number of inter-available National Rail routes
between the following stations only:

 

Amersham - Marylebone

Finsbury Park - Moorgate (Via Drayton Park Only) Fenchurch Street -

Upminster Stratford - Liverpool Street Kentish Town - Elephant &

Castle or London Bridge Euston - Watford Junction

 

Currently C2C operate services which include Fenchurch Street to
Upminster. TfL Staff Passes (with a prefix serial number of 001) can use
this service as part of the inter-available route between these stations
only.

 

Please note that TfL staff passes are not based on a zonal structure.

 

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
