There is substantial monitoring of serious bus collisions across the network as part of TfL’s extensive safety governance processes. This starts with notification of an incident at the time it occurs and tracking of each investigation through to conclusion. Any significant lessons learnt from these cases are shared with the other bus operators so bus operation can be continually improved. There is also direct monitoring of general collisions across the network up to board level.
