Request for information:
“Under the LGOIMA, I would like to request information regarding bus size allocation.
I understand that Metlink sets a minimum capacity for buses used on all routes. I understand the classification of each size to be: SV - Small vehicle with a capacity of 30-53 passengers; MV - Medium Vehicle with a capacity of 54-74 Passengers; LV - Large Vehicle with a capacity of at least 75 passengers and 36 seats; DD - Double Decker with a capacity of at least 95 Passengers and 80 seats.
Provided my above definitions are correct, I would like to request the following information under the LGOIMA:
Minimum Capacity Set by Metlink for the Following Metlink Services (Both Morning and Night): 627, 633, 634, 635;
How the minimum capacity is decided for each of the above routes, and what criteria is taken into account when making this decision;
The penalty the operator of each service incurs when they operate a service with below minimum size bus.
Under the LGOIMA, I understand I am eligible for a response within 20 working days.
Please note this request is separate and does not replace the other request for information sent on
the 28th of October.”
