Answer for Temporary Toilets

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Considerable progress has been made in providing toilets in recent years: - 23 Automatic Conveniences (ACs) have been installed - 2 further toilet cabins have been provided in conjunction with mess rooms - A substantial number of agreements have been reached with third parties, such as taxi firms, council offices, libraries etc., to allow bus drivers to use their facilities - Formal agreement was reached with London Underground (before it became part of TfL) for bus drivers to use the toilets at all 54 stations that have adjacent bus terminalsTfL has in place a programme to prioritise the provision of toilets on those routes that have no toilet at either end, or which are 24-hour and Night Bus routes that do not have access to toilets throughout their hours of operation.
