TfL has considered this approach. However, they concluded that the existing extensive monitoring of driving standards of bus drivers through surveys conducted by the Driving Standards Agency provided the best approach.

In addition, posters already displayed inside buses provide passengers with the contact details of TfL Surface Transport Customer Services, so that passengers can report any difficulties or issues they have. Contact details are also available on TfL's website and in the Yellow Pages Local Transport Guide.
