Question

The C2 bus (double-decker) runs from the bottom of Highgate West Hill to Oxford Circus. Are you aware of the wishes of local people to run the service all the way up Highgate West Hill to connect Highgate Village to Oxford Circus? Will you give this serious consideration?

TfL is aware of this and has recently examined this suggestion. Highgate West Hill is already served by route 214, which provides many of the same links as the C2 would if it were extended as suggested. Only a limited number of new links would be created if the C2 were extended in this way and consequently TfL did not support this suggestion.
