Answered By:

TfL has reviewed night bus provision in this area of Sutton and Croydon a number of times. The conclusion has been that any such service would not generate sufficient passengers to justify the cost.

However, a review of route 154 and other services in the Sutton area is currently underway and will consider provision of Nightbus services.
