Abellio London lowers on-board bus casualties by 60%

Abellio London, which runs London buses for Transport for London, was determined to lower their fleet’s collision rate as part of Vision Zero, a project to reduce road deaths to zero by 2041.

The trial was done in coordination with drivers and their union and was supported by Transport for London’s Bus Safety Innovation Fund. Read More
