Answered By: 
The Mayor

Crossrail services will start running from Abbey Wood from 2018. TfL is analysing modelled changes in demand on the bus network that are forecast to result.

TfL officers have met with borough officers to discuss initial results and will continue to engage with affected boroughs across London as plans for changes to the bus network are developed. This is likely to include changes to levels of service and/or capacity and the provision of new links to Crossrail stations.
