Question

TfL have refused a request to run a direct bus service from Sutton to Epsom Hospital as the costs were deemed too high. However I believe a bus route serving a hospital can override budgetary considerations.  Do you agree and if so, will you instruct TfL to introduce a direct bus service to and from the hospital?

TfL is currently considering costs for implementing a direct service from Sutton to Epsom Hospital. The most cost effective option requires additional standing space at Epsom Hospital. TfL is in touch with the hospital, and will let you know the outcome of discussions once complete.
