Answer for Bus safety performance on bus routes with no toilets

Answered By: 
The Mayor

All serious incidents on London's bus network are fully investigated to ascertain the causes. There is no clear link between the safety performance of a bus route and the toilet facilities made available. There are also no bus routes left on the network without toilet facilities located at least at one end.
