Our ref: FOI-0806-1718/GH


Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 3 July 2017 asking for information about fatal Accidents involving tfl buses and cyclists.


Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and TfL’s information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.


Road safety data for London is collected by the police in accordance with Department for Transport STATS20 national guidance, and reported in STATS19 format. More information can be found at:


We publish detailed STATS19 road safety data back to 2005 on the London Collision Map which is available here:


You can filter the map to show different types of vehicles involved in collisions and the year you are interested in. For your request, you can filter to show those collisions which involved a fatality and where a cyclist and a bus/coach were involved. Please note that the police record vehicle types, but do not specify the vehicle owner, therefore we cannot advise you on collisions involving a ‘tfL bus’ – these would be included within the ‘bus/coach category.


STATS19 data does not identify the specific ‘cause’ of collisions. The vehicle type shows that these vehicles were involved in a collision. It does not indicate that they were at fault.


If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.


If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.


Yours sincerely
