Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 26 August 2019 asking for information about bus route 415.
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:
Route 415 Routemaster:
Can you confirm you are aware that route master buses are being used on route 415. Did TfL grant permission if so on what grounds and can we please see the communication?
We can confirm that we have agreed for New Routemasters (NRMs) to be used on bus route 415. With effect from 31 August the route is fully NRM operated.
Please see attached email from TfL to Abellio dated 19 July 2018. Please note that the 24 November 2018 change referred to in the email did not occur until 31 August 2019 and involved 4 buses not 3.
Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data Protection legislation some personal data has been removed, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first principle which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.
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.
