Yes. Transport for London’s (TfL’s) bus operating companies have agreed to comply with the London Living Wage requirements for all staff delivering the bus network, both those employed directly and those employed by contractors.

TfL is writing to all of the bus operating companies shortly to inform them of the London Living Wage rate for 2019.
