Dear FOI TFL Team, Hope my message finds you well. I am writing to you as you are the author of one of the FOI's filed on July 24, 2019 on bus shelter information. The TFL Ref# is 1285-1920. I would like your support in seeing if there is a way to know who owns the bus stops. I am more interested in who is the party/entity that owns the bus stops in Canary Wharf as we have a project we need to run it through them. Thanks a lot for your support in advance.
