Answer for Bus Routes

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Key proposals to improve bus services throughout London are set out in my draft Transport Strategy. Making bus travel easier and more affordable and improving service quality and passenger information will benefit passengers on all routes.

When we alter routes or introduce new ones, our main priority should be passengers' needs.

All routes are reviewed regularly to ensure they respond to changes in local demand or operating conditions. As I stated before, Dave Wetzel is leading this process as the chair of London Buses. As part of his review, he is happy to discuss comments and complaints of Assembly members and their constituents. He recently organised a well attended public meeting with Bob Neill in Bromley for example to listen to local views about bus routes and the performance of the bus company.
