More than 80 people were killed or seriously injured in crashes involving a London bus over a three-month period, Transport for London (TfL) has revealed.

In east London, this included a woman aged in her 70s who died after a crash at Walthamstow bus station on December 15 last year.

A route 212 bus collided with the pedestrian just after 5pm in the evening, and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident has been highlighted in documents for an upcoming meeting of TfL’s safety, sustainability and human resources panel.

In statistics released for the last quarter of 2023/24, TfL said that 86 people had been killed or seriously injured after a crash involving a London bus.

The report also mentions the death of Catherine Finnegan, 56, who died after being hit by a double-decker bus at Victoria station in January. 

Across London, 1,056 people were killed or seriously injured after crashes on TfL roads, and 59 customers on its transport network.

Other east London incidents highlighted in the report included deaths at three train stations.

On Boxing Day last year, a person died after they fell onto Jubilee line tracks at Stratford.

Then, in January, a customer died after they fell on the platform at Mile End station.

Most recently, another customer died after they fell onto the London Overground tracks at Wapping station, on February 15.

TfL said that despite the incidents, the number of customer injuries was lower over this period of time than the three-year pre-pandemic baseline.

The transport body said it was committed to ramping up safety at stations, and that in February it had provided 40 Tube stations with mini-ramps to help cover the gap between the train and the platform.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has committed to ensuring nobody is killed by a London bus by 2030, and for all deaths and serious injuries to be eliminated on the capital’s roads by 2041.

Action taken so far includes introducing 20mph speed limits on huge swathes of the TfL network.
