Answer for Bus stand at Kew Garden Station

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The bus stand at Kew Gardens is not used by scheduled terminating buses so it is not possible to provide information on the number of vehicles that use it.I can tell you that it is used for buses which have been curtailed short of their scheduled destination for operational reasons. Such decisions are made by service controllers on the day, depending on the circumstances at the time, to help ensure bus services continue to run reliably. The stand is also used for rail replacement services. Again, it is not possible to provide exact bus numbers involved in this type of work.
