TfL to evaluate bus safety programme at RoadPeace conference

London bus needs accrediting

Transport for London (TfL) will evaluate its bus safety programme at RoadPeace’s annual AGM and conference on Friday (17 June).

The presentation will be delivered by Vernon Everitt, TfL’s managing director of customs, communication and technology.

The bus safety programme, which was launched in February, seeks to bring together the latest technology, training, incentives, support, reporting and transparency right across the network.

In March, TfL announced that all new buses across London are to be fitted with Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA), after successful trials of the technology.

The programme, which seeks to develop a world leading bus safety standard for London, is an important part of TfL’s work towards meeting the target of halving the number of people killed or seriously injured on the Capital’s roads by 2020.

RoadPeace is a national charity for road crash victims, founded in 1992 with the principle of road danger reduction.

The RoadPeace AGM and conference takes at the offices of Fieldfisher at Riverbank House, 2 Swan Lane, London EC4R 3TT.

The event is split into two parts, with the AGM running from 15:30 to 17:00 and a conference from 17:30 to 20:00. The AGM can only be attended by RoadPeace members but the conference is open to all.

Space is limited so please email RoadPeace if you would like to attend.
