Question

Many parents of school pupils have requested that the 603 bus (Muswell Hill-Swiss Cottage) be increased in frequency during term-time, start earlier and finish later. Would you please ask TfL to consider these changes as further contributions to reducing 'the school run' in NW London?

TfL recently reviewed the 603 as part of the re-tendering of the service contract. TfL considered whether there was a case to increase the frequency of the service based on current usage and concluded that the current frequency is sufficient. TfL is considering however whether the timings of some journeys can altered. I know that TfL has been in correspondence with you about this and they will write again shortly.
