Driver incident reports are calls from a driver of a bus to London's 24 hour bus control centre (CentreComm). The majority do not demand an emergency response. The reports can be categorised into anti-social, congestion, bus operation and safety.It is important to note that not all driver incident reports result in a recorded crime. Analysis shows that under 40% of these reports end in any police attention and that an even smaller proportion require an emergency response. London Buses actively encourages drivers to report all incidents through the control centre to allow for informed decisions to be made about the deployment of resources to the transport network pan London.The full breakdown for the driver incident reports by year since 2003 and route will be forwarded to you by TfL separately.
