Answer for Bus Drivers' Register

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Bus drivers are employed by the private bus operators and it would not be appropriate for TfL to hold their personal details.

However, it has put an assurance process in place to enable bus companies to check their employees against TfL's Taxi and Private Hire database to minimise the risk of bus drivers having second jobs as private hire drivers.
