A constituent has written to me with regard to overcrowding on the London Bus Route 256, which occurs between Hornchurch and Harold Hill during the rush hour times. Could you please urge TfL to look again at the possibility of introducing double decker buses on this route during the rush hour times to ease overcrowding especially during term time ?

TfL reviewed this route recently and no capacity issues were identified.

However, I have asked TfL to contact you to ascertain the exact location of this overcrowding and then to see if further surveys of demand are required.
