Further to Question No: 2017/3697

As there is inadequate seating for the many elderly or disabled passengers, what access requirements were assessed in awarding the contract for the 13 bus route?

Your response being:

'Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly'

Will you now provide a substantive reply?

your response being

Please see my response to MQ 2017/3697

which was also

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Instead of giving a circular non-answer to a question that has been outstanding for several months, will you now give a substantive reply; or are Londoners to assume from the non replies so far that no consideration was given to the needs of the elderly or disabled, when this contract was let?

Capacity was increased on route 113, the other main route serving this area, on 1 April 2017. Buses now operate every 7-8 minutes during the day from Monday to Saturday, with two additional southbound journeys in the morning peak and two additional northbound journeys in the afternoon peak. Reliability has also improved and the route now regularly exceeds its minimum performance standard.

TfL will continue to monitor routes in this area to ensure capacity continues to match passenger demand.
