TfL is not party to such information and cannot provide it. The detail of what disciplinary action is taken is a matter between the driver and their employer. However, the operator does confirm that action has been taken.During the GLA Transport Committee's scrutiny of bus driving standards, TfL confirmed that the details of disciplinary action taken with bus drivers are confidential and for Data Protection reasons cannot be released.
