Bus drivers are not paid enough to enable them to depend on the wages from the standard 38 hours allocated each week. As a direct result of this, most drivers have no choice but to do over time.  This takes precious times away from family. This also causes fatigue which results in avoidable accidents. Taking on extra duties when tired inhibits the driver from carrying out most the requirement set out by TFL. For example being patient, smiling e.t.c.For passengers to enjoy their journey safely and smoothly, depends on drivers professionalism and for drivers to be on top of their game, they need to be well rested. And this can only be achieved when they do not have to work overtime just to be able to keep up with bills.
