Answer for Fare Evasion Surveys

Answered By: 
The Mayor

This was a reference to the work of TfL Revenue Protection Inspectors, who work across the bus network to identify fare evasion. In addition to this, TfL has undertaken pilot studies to measure how many passengers disembark buses when Inspectors board, and what impact the presence of Inspectors have on the use made of Roadside Ticket Machines. Information gathered from the work of Revenue Protection Inspectors, from the pilot studies mentioned and from surveys are used to build a picture of fare evasion on the bus network.
