There are no plans for frequency enhancements to route 117 at this time. London Buses data does not show any capacity issues, although usage is showing strong growth. London Buses will now look at the route and times and locations of the overcrowding are supplied they will arrange surveys and take action to provide more capacity if this is required. .
