I hope to hear from you soon,
TfL Ref: FOI-0301-2122
Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 10th May 2021 asking for CCTV footage from a bus on xx January 2021.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.
Specifically you asked:
“I just wanted to request some bus footage from a accident I had on the xx Jan 2021. This will be used for proof to my insurer for my claim. I have the registration of the bus involved which was SN12EHH and my car reg which is xxxxxx.”
I am afraid that TfL does not hold the requested information. London's bus services are operated by private bus companies on behalf of TfL. CCTV on London buses is the responsibility of the company that runs that particular service or route, and any recorded footage is held by those companies rather than TfL. If you require access to CCTV footage from a bus you should contact the company who operates that particular route. It is not clear from your request exactly which bus route it is, but note that a list of all routes and the companies that operate them can be found on our website here:
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
