You asked

Dear TFL FOI team, On August 1, 2023 I made a request relating to data relating to the e-scooter trials in London in FOI-1421-2324/GH. Since then I notice you have published a request of similar nature which includes almost the exact data I need ( FOI-1050-2324). However, the data published in this request concerns a different date I am interested in. I was wondering if you can publish the same data but extend the start date back to June 2021 when the e-scooter trial is started by TFL. The purpose of my research is stated in FOI-1421-2324 which is almost identical to that of the newly published request. To sum up my request, I was hoping to obtain: 1. Duration of each trip 2. Distance covered in each trip 3. Average speed during each trip 4. Origin latitude (rounded to 3 decimal places) 5. Origin longitude (rounded to 3 decimal places) 6. Destination latitude (rounded to 3 decimal places) 7. Destination longitude (rounded to 3 decimal places) 8. Month of the trip. The format which I request the data will be identical to FOI-1050-2324 but with the start date pushed back to June 2021. I hope this request is possible for the same public benefits stated in the two previous requests. Thank you
