Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL increased the frequency on route W19 in June 2014 from a bus every 20 minutes to one every 15 minutes. In the morning peak hour towards Walthamstow, frequency increased from a bus every 15 minutes to one every 12 minutes.

Usage has increased by just over 20 per cent compared to the same period last year. TfL is now reviewing the detailed impacts including capacity and will let you know the outcome.  This is expected in February.
