Question

I have received complaints about the no 1 bus. The westbound buses are often seriously overcrowded in the morning rush hour. Will you ask TfL to increase the frequency and capacity of service?

The frequency and passenger capacity of route 1 is sufficient providing the route runs reliably. Route 1 has been disrupted recently owing to roadworks in the Surrey Quays area. These roadwork's are now complete and I hope that traffic levels will settle down shortly. TfL will continue to keep route 1 under review.
