The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) gives rights of public access to information held by public authorities. In 2013, an amendment to the FOIA extended the meaning of ‘publically owned company’ meaning that Urban Transport Group is a public authority for the purpose of the FOIA.
Under the FOIA every public authority must adopt and maintain a publication scheme using the model approved by the Information Commissioner. As such, the Urban Transport Group publication scheme specifies:
- Classes of information which we publish or intend to publish
- The manner in which information is to be published
- Whether there is any charge for the information
The publication scheme can be downloaded below.
