You asked

I would like to know if you could provide me with the average and starting salary/pay of TFL London bus drivers each year back to 1933 (when TFL took over the buses). Also, if possible, could I have the information in real terms pay and inflation/decimal adjusted?

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 10 June 2018.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. 

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you have requested. We do not hold this data for bus drivers, as they are not employed by TfL. You would have to contact each individual bus operator for this information.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
