Question

With the ever-growing increase in the local population in Colindale adding a huge burden to the only direct transport link to central London, namely the tube and as there is  no foreseeable prospect of the tube station capacity being increased,  will  TFL introduce a daytime bus service serving Colindale that links directly to central London?

TfL is in regular contact with Barnet Council about developments in the area, including the major regeneration of Grahame Park. 

There are plans to support this in a range of ways, including increasing bus capacity and connectivity.  A review of potential requirements is taking place and will be discussed with the council in early 2015.
