TfL does not conduct financial analysis of bus collisions as this data is chiefly collected to understand trends, the causes of incidents and how they might be minimised. As bus operators incur the risks and costs associated with managing incidents including any arising claims and vehicle repairs TfL does not hold this information. However, the DfT has a cost model that can be used to support prevention such as road-safety initiatives.
