Question

Does TfL plan to introduce any more bus routes to serve the Pollards Hill Estate in Mitcham.

Answer for Pollards Hill Estate

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Pollards Hill is served by three bus routes: 60, 152 and 255 and there are no plans to introduce further routes to the area. Pollards Hill has a variety of direct links including to Thornton Heath Pond, Norbury, Croydon, Streatham, Mitcham and Clapham Common. Where direct links cannot be provided London Buses aims to provide reliable services with good interchange facilities. Further journeys from Pollards Hill are available by interchange, for example between routes 152 and 280 at Mitcham to reach St Georges Hospital. Each of them runs seven days per week from early in the morning to late at night and London Buses are considering increasing the frequency on routes 60 and 255 in 2003. .
