Thank you for your email received by us on 12 October 2018 asking for information about the number of bus contracts that will be awarded henceforth to July 2019.
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 information you require. You asked:
how many bus contracts will be awarded between now and July 2019, on a reduced service requirement. for example those with reduced frequency and/or those which have been shortened.
I can advise that there are 47 bus routes that are due to be awarded prior to July 2019, with commencement dates up to 31 March 2020.
We only have confirmed plans to reduce the service requirements of one route, the 94, following a consultation on proposed Oxford Street changes. We will review or decide on the appropriate service requirements on the remaining 46 routes at a later date, as many of them are included in the current central London bus services consultation.
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.
