Question

On 1 February 2016, the Mayor's "world leading" Bus Safety Programme stated that "Over the next three months TfL will be updating their bus contracting system and will develop incentives to encourage an even greater focus on safety."  On 10 July 2016 (Question 2016/2455) you stated that changes to contracts had been pushed back to December 2017.  Does this include the "updating" that was promised in February 2016?  If not, when can we expect "incentives to encourage an even greater focus on safety" to be incorporated into TfL bus contracts?
