London iBus Announcements

Request ID: FOI-3413-1819
Date published: 02 April 2019

You asked

Hi, I'm a bus enthusiast that thoroughly enjoys both the appearance and design of London's buses. I'd like to request all of the most recent iBus announcements via CD or digital download (just the passenger information; for example "This bus is on diversion" or "The next bus stop is closed.") I do not wish to obtain the stop and destination announcements, simply just the passenger information announcements Bus Drivers can use to easily communicate with all passengers at once. If this were to be provided to me, I'd like to request consent to use these for an online game called ROBLOX to use in-game for a Bus Simulator myself and a friend are working on.
