Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

On 29 May, I announced the next New Bus for London conversion will be route 11. Please see the following press release: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/media/newscentre/archive/28022.aspx.

This followed my announcement in January 2013 that the first route to be to be converted to operate entirely with New Bus for London vehicles would be route 24.

Further routes will be announced as commercial negotiations with operators are complete.
