In your answer to my question 2017/2176 you said: “Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) forms one part of the new Bus Safety Standard, and TfL expects the first newly-manufactured bus which fully meets the Bus Safety Standard to enter service in 2018.” How many buses fitted with ISA are now in service in London, and what percentage of the total fleet do they represent?

Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) is fitted to nearly 400 buses and the technology has been activated on around 130 of these. A driver briefing programme is underway so that ISA can be activated on all 400 buses as soon as possible.

Transport for London expects ISA to have been fitted to around 700 buses in the first half of next year and for this to carry on increasing as part of the Bus Safety Standard, which will incorporate it alongside other safety technologies and safer vehicle designs.
