Personal injury collisions involving buses and coaches are reported as a single category under Department for Transport (DfT) national STATS20 instructions. The latest available provisional information we have available from the Police on TfL’s ACCSATS system, is to the end of March 2017. All 2017 records are currently provisional and subject to change.
Please find attached casualty data for the number of pedal cyclists injured in collisions involving a bus or coach in London between January 2014 to March 2017. All STATS19 records involve personal injury and refer to collisions reported by the police, or in some cases a member of the public, and occurring on the public highway; we do not hold damage only collisions information.
