TFL Bus Service Consultation
Last week, Transport For London, announced plans for a consultation on a number of bus route changes in and around the borough. The changes are, according to TFL, designed in part to reduce congestion and air pollution which is partially caused by a duplication of some of the bus routes, as well as “rationalise” the overall service.
We as an RMO are keen to ensure that local residents are aware and able to take part in this consultation as there are two local routes, 3 and 45 which will be affected, as well as others close by to our area. Please do have a read of this consultation below.
