FOI request detail

Bus Strategy Paper

Request ID: FOI-0822-1718
Date published: 03 August 2017

You asked

I note that in the papers published for the 13 July 2017 Customer Service and Ops Performance Committee that you have not published the promised paper on "New Bus Network / Future of the Bus" which had been highlighted on the meeting's action list. I note that this paper was discussed "informally" in May during the purdah period for the General Election. I would like to request a copy of the paper that would have been submitted to the May 2017 Customer Service and Ops Performance Committee. Please note I am not asking for anything that would have been withheld in conjunction with your policy as to "business confidentiality". As I assume there is a paper drafted for "public consumption" I trust you will expedite this request within the usual FOI timescale without the need for redaction or escalation within TfL. If you intend to publish the Bus Strategy Paper for the TfL Board Meeting on 27 July 2017 then you can close this request BUT please tell me that you will be publishing it and seek my agreement before closing this request. I would want a written confirmation as to TfL's intent on this matter as I do not want to have to make a second FOI request!
