Safety is at the heart of Transport for London’s bus operations. Around 6.5 million passengers are transported every day on London buses and there are fewer than 3 injures for every million passengers. This makes the London bus network one of the safeties in the world.

Transport for London has adopted Vision Zero for London, with a target of zero deaths or serious injuries on the road by 2041. For buses London has an even more ambitious target of no one killed in, or by, a London bus by 2030.

The Bus Safety Standard is a range of measures that are working within the industry of all operators in London. The features include:

  • Advanced Emergency Braking
  • Intelligent Speed Assistance
  • Improved Direct and Indirect Vision
  • Pedal Application Error
  • Runaway Bus Prevention
  • Acoustic and Visual Conspicuity
  • Vulnerable Road User Frontal Crashworthiness
  • Occupant-Friendly Interiors
  • Slip Protection
