A constituent has contacted me to ask whether you will you be rolling out the full-colour 'bus route maps' shown on some central London bus stops, that show where each bus service runs to more widely?

The Mayor

TfL provides bus route maps in two formats; 'multi route panels' which are located on bus stop posts and also contain timetable information, and posters known as 'spider maps' which are located in bus shelters.

Multi route maps are primarily found in central London or busy town centres where the number of routes serving the stop exceeds the timetable capacity and where more than one route may serve a destination.  'Spider Maps' are available in most bus shelters served by multiple routes. 

A review is presently underway of the type of information being provided both in terms of content and where it is provided with a view to improving visibility across London. This review will incorporate changes to existing information arising from the planned conversion to 24 hour operation of some Tube services in September 2015.  The review will be complete at the end of May 2015 and I have asked TfL to provide you with an update then.
