Question

In your response to 2015/1697 you stated 'It would not be desirable to make air cooling units work harder to nullify the effects of warmer air entering the bus through open windows. For this reason, there has been no assessment of costs for retrofitting buses with windows.' Given that you recently announced that all New Bus for London vehicles will now be retrofitted with opening windows, do you stand by your statement that such a retrofit programme had not been costed by TfL in June 2015?

The statement is correct. No such retrofit programme was costed by TfL in June 2015 as no decision had been taken at that point.
