Bus Crime League Table

TfL have produced a list of the bus routes with the most 'driver incident reports'. They are, from 1 to 10:

38 Clapton Pond - Victoria, new to the top position, up from number 4 last year. Hang onto your bags!

25 Oxford Circus - Ilford High Road, the old faithful slips back from its number one position over the last three years. The committee watched ticket inspectors and police at work on this articulated bus and it was clear that paying your fare was seen as optional by many passengers.

29 Wood Green Station - Trafalgar Square, down from number two last year.

73 Seven Sisters - Victoria, up from number six last year.

51 Orpington - Woolwich, a newcomer straight in at number five this year, and the only one of the top ten running entirely south of the river

149 Edmonton Green - London Bridge, down a place from number five last year, a bendy bus with pickpocketing problems.

18 Sudbury - Euston, holding its position at number seven, another articulated vehicle.

5 Canning Town - Romford, double decker new on the list at number eight, locals have complained about anti social behaviour.

8 Bow - Victoria, much improved from the number three position last year, buses have CCTV and a screen which shows the passengers what the cameras can see.

176 Oxford Circus - Penge, slips back from number nine, the only route in the top ten which crosses the river.
