Answered By:

Some bus links are likely to see a decline in usage, whilst others feeding Crossrail stations should see an increase in demand. Any such changes will be relative to other underlying factors, most importantly the impact of London's rising population.

TfL has undertaken initial liaison with affected boroughs to better understand their aspirations for bus changes post Crossrail. Their intention is to develop outlines of potential service revisions by mid-2014 to enable further discussions with boroughs and other stakeholders.
