Question

My office asked for details of all the bus tenders and were told by TfL, 'source data for the information on the website is not available on an excel spread sheet or in a similar format. Each tender result is inputted individually and therefore there is no collective source available.' Can you explain why this is the policy and will you seek to change it so all data is collated centrally to allow easier examination of the process?

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

The TfL website already provides a comprehensive summary of each bus route tender since 2003. The information published provides the company name of the successful tenderer, awarded price, highest submitted price, lowest submitted price, total number of tenderers and cost per mile. This information can be found at: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/businessandpartners/buses/tenderresults/.
