Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL already makes a wide range of road safety information available on its website at http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publications-and-reports/road-safety. This includes detailed casualty, collision and vehicle data files for the period 2005 to 2013 as well as annual figures for road traffic collisions and casualties involving buses or coaches.

 

As of January 2014, TfL started publishing bus incidents data quarterly on its website at https://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publications-and-reports/buses. This provides information on the number of incidents that were fatal or where the individual was ‘taken to hospital’ by bus route, operator and by borough. 

 

TfL appreciates that further improvements could be made to the website to make road safety data more widely accessible and is currently looking into this.
