Question

Many of London's older public toilets were sited at bus termini. Over the years many of these facilities have been closed although they still perform a necessary function. The London Borough of Camden intends to save £200k per annum by closing a number of public toilets in the Borough, several of which are still sited adjacent to bus termini and are therefore used by both bus drivers and passengers. If some compromise scheme can be worked out including local business sponsorship, would TfL be prepared to contribute to keep the toilets open to drivers?

The majority of bus stands in the London Borough of Camden have dedicated toilets for bus drivers close by, so there should be little need for them to use public facilities as adequate provision already exists for drivers. The wider issue of public toilet provision is a borough responsibility.
