The report was published on Transport for London’s website on 28 August 2019, in line with the commitment to share the full contents with the public in the summer. As the research was substantial and involved parties including the bus operators and Unite the Union, it was necessary to share it with them in advance of publication, in order to consider what actions could be taken together to address the recommendations.
