Answered By:

As you will be aware single deck buses operate on this route Monday to Saturday. The frequency of route 42 on Sundays is to increase to a bus every 15 minutes from April, so that the double deck buses are no longer required to meet demand.TfL's Consultation Guidelines set out what service changes would require consultation, and which would require only for stakeholders to be informed. A relatively minor change, such as this, would not require consultation with stakeholders. TfL did not therefore consult stakeholders on the proposal before making a decision.
