Question

At your press conference of 24th April 2007, you stated that a TfL study which concluded that women cyclists are far more likely to be killed than male cyclists, as reported in The Times and other newspapers that day, did not exist and was in fact anecdotal evidence given at a private meeting of the Road Safety Unit. Can you provide the minutes and papers from this meeting so your claims can be corroborated?

This is set out below. The proportion of complaints received to journeys made on the bus network remains very low. During 2005/06 there were over 59,000 journeys made for every complaint received by TfL Surface Transport Customer Services.If a passenger has any reason to complain about their experience of using the bus network, I would recommend that they contact TfL Surface Transport Customer Services on 0845 300 7000. 2003-2004 2004-2005 2005-2006 2006-2007 Total 18823 25340 30471 31642 No. of journeys made per complaint 90,421 70,757 59,597 -
