TfL keep bus services in Islington under regular review in the usual way. The process includes invitation of stakeholder comments, preparation of proposals and consultation. Over time this will involve changes to the frequency or general pattern of services, subject to the outcome of consultation.

For example, as part of this process recent changes include the conversion of route 38 to double-deck buses with an accompanying frequency increase and an increase in evening and Sunday frequencies on route 63 from every 10 to every 8 minutes. In January 2010 route 10 will become a 24-hour service replacing route N10 and there will be associated changes to route 33.

Further changes will continue to be brought forward for consultation as part of this process. This will include, in due course, detailed proposals for the replacement of articulated buses on routes 29 and 73.
