The London bus service provides an extensive network of suburban links which have been very significantly enhanced in recent years. Examples of improvements in the last four years are included in the full list of service changes since May 2008 which has been published on the TfL website. See also my answer to 830/2012.

Suburban bus service users have also benefitted from better reliability, many more new and more environmentally friendly buses, more accessible bus stops and the new mobile real-time bus arrival information for every stop.
