Question

I have received numerous reports of severe overcrowding on the W3 bus route in Haringey. There are complaints of waits of 20 minutes plus when the service is supposed to be every 6-8 minutes, and queues longer than the buses can cope with, so not all passengers are able to board. Will you conduct a review into this service and take actions to improve the service for commuters?

TfL is aware of reliability issues on the W3.  A new schedule to address this is expected to be introduced in May, when extra buses and drivers become available.
