Answered By:

Route 206 runs every 15 minutes (every 20 minutes on Sundays, and half-hourly in the evenings). Route PR2 also links Brentfield Road and Brent Park. . The possibility of increasing the frequency was examined in 2006 but the benefits were insufficient to justify this . Usage has increased somewhat since then but overall capacity remains adequate. Hence TfL has no plans to increase the frequency.
