Question

Despite the very welcome extension of route 415 to Old Kent Road Tesco, I have received further complaints about overcrowded bus services (namely the 453) along the Old Kent Road. Please could you ask TfL for their further views?

Answer for Bus overcrowding on Old Kent Road

Answered By:

Reliability on the 453 has been affected by road works in Elephant & Castle. 

TfL has introduced an additional bus on route 453 to improve reliability and help ease overcrowding along the route.  TfL will continue to keep routes in this area under review to ensure there is sufficient reliability and capcacity along the Old Kent Road.
