Transport for London (TfL) now has toilets in place for 43 prioritised routes, served by 26 temporary and 17 permanent facilities. Temporary facilities are being used in some locations ahead of the transition to permanent facilities. While this work remains on course, TfL needs the backing of London’s boroughs and local stakeholders to help smooth the path.

As the bus network is regularly updated to reflect changing travel patterns, routes and the location of toilets can change. TfL, its bus operators and the union Unite regularly review the programme to ensure facilities are provided where they are most needed by staff, as well as continue to support a reliable and efficient bus network.
