Answered By:

Proposals for a rapid transit system (RTS) originated with Barnet Council and not with TfL. I have always believed that the best way to deal with additional travel demand in this area is by providing additional capacity on the bus network and by developing a new Thameslink station near the Brent Cross development site. TfL is focusing its efforts on delivering these schemes.
