Asked Of: 
The Mayor


Residents have reported that Onslow square is often used as a change over stop for bus drivers, resulting in stationary buses left with their engines on for around 20 minutes at various times of the day and night, causing disturbance to residents as well as unnecessary pollution on the square. Can the Mayor assure residents that TfL will ensure that operators enforce that bus drivers turn off their engines while they wait in the square?

Bus drivers are instructed to switch off their engines when they reach a stand or when it is necessary to change drivers. Notices are displayed in bus garages and at bus stands themselves to reinforce this. TfL has also raised this issue with the operator.
