TfL Ref: FOI-0518-1718
Thank you for your email received by us on 31 May 2017 asking for information about bus route specifications. Please accept my apologies for the delay in replying to you.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm that we hold the information you require. You asked:
Following the recent success in my previous requests I would like to request:
1) all bus route specifications for all London Underground, London Overground, Docklands Light Railway, and National Rail (if possible) bus replacement services.
We do not have set specifications for rail replacement bus routes although vehicle dimensions are determined by physical limitations that constrain either the maximum permissible length or height of the vehicle or satisfy emissions standards where appropriate. They are planned around where they need to be, often in discussion with rail or tube providers, and then the appropriate vehicles are provided that meet Public Service Vehicle Accessibility Regulations (PSVAR) standards.
2) An updated version of the bus destination display list (like the one from this case: FOI-1922-1516).
Please see attached the information requested.
If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
