London Buses estimated that there would be 3,000 trips a day on the route. This was slightly more than necessary to meet the cost benefit criteria used by TfL to justify bus schemes. In the last 4 weeks average loadings have been over 3,200, (but as per my previous answer to 144/2004 we will wait until demand settles down to fully evaluate the route). .
