The attached table (Appendix E) lists incidents during 2005 and 2006.Buses remain a very safe mode of transport. For example, during 2006 there were only 2.6 pedestrian injuries and 19.3 passenger injuries per million miles operated.The London Buses' incidents' management database started collecting network data from October 2004. Prior to October 2004, bus operators entered accident data into their own systems. It is not possible to provide explanations of every incident on the network.Collisions included in the table include those with vehicles, structures and pedestrians.
