Answer for 268 Bus Service

Answered By: 
Ken Livingstone

The average excess waiting time in quarters 2 and 3 for the financial year 2003/04 was 1.54 minutes and 1.98 minutes respectively. This compares to waiting times of 1.57 minutes and 2.12 minutes for the same quarters in the previous year. The target for this route is an excess waiting time of 1.3 minutes. Although clearly reliability is improving, London Buses are concerned that the service does not yet operate to target. They are therefore working with Metroline, the operator, to identify what could be done to further improve reliability. .
