TfL is working closely with Southwark Council to understand the impacts of development in the local area on demand for bus services. The results of this review will be available by autumn 2016.

Improvements have already been made to reliability on route 381 by increasing the number of buses and drivers in January 2016, to address delays caused by roadworks at Elephant & Castle.  Additionally, frequency increases on route C10 were introduced in October 2015. Larger buses on route C10 to improve capacity were introduced in March 2016.
