Question

If somebody used to take a long night bus home, it would cost them £1.50. If they have to take a tube plus a bus, that would cost somebody £4.30. Will you ensure TfL consider the impact that the cutting back on night bus routes could have on shift workers who may have bus passes, and would end up having to pay more to take a night tube?

The majority of routes will remain unchanged, hence those who prefer to continue to use the night bus network will be able to do so.  TfL will commence their consultation on any proposals for bus changes in conjunction with Night Tube in the summer, providing an opportunity for all stakeholders to comment. I am aware of this issue and have specifically asked that the cart implications be taken into account in the proposals that are developed. These will be considered as part of the process.
