Routes 109, 250, 319 and N137 have all been reviewed in the past year, resulting in changes to improve reliability.  Routes 109 and 249 had additional capacity introduced on weekday mornings.  Route 159 was withdrawn between Paddington and Marble Arch as part of a major set of changes in that corridor. Route 255 was extended from Streatham to Balham providing a bus service to the Weir Road area for the first time.

TfL will be meeting Lambeth council (and other boroughs) during 2015 to identify shared strategic priorities for the bus network in the borough. The regular network review process will continue, including responding to reliability or capacity issues and carrying out health check reviews of routes 57, 133, 249, 315, 333, P13 and N133.
