In response to my question on TfL bonuses and bus KPIs (2015/3112) you stated 'Bus route schedules are regularly revised to improve reliability and reflect conditions at the time. Minimum Excess Wait Time (EWT) standards are similarly set in relation to known traffic disruption on routes and can be updated to reflect more recent road conditions if necessary. This means the system incentivises bus operators to meet achievable targets and exert influence over reliability through well-developed service control methods'.

Please state which bus routes have had their Minimum EWT standards updated in the last twelve months and when each update occurred?

In the past year, Minimum Performance Standards were updated for the 48 routes shown in table 1 in Appendix J.

In addition to this, new schedules were introduced on 237 routes to improve reliability and reflect changed traffic conditions, these are shown in table 2.

TfL publishes Minimum Performance Standards by route as well as current performance online at https://tfl.gov.uk/forms/14144.aspx
