Further to the recent cut in weekday frequency of the Barking - Walthamstow rail replacement bus service, can TfL confirm that no further cuts will be made to either this or the Gospel Oak - Seven Sisters rail replacement bus service and that the incorrect timetables on the TfL website and posted outside the closed stations, will be corrected.

Answer for Barking - Gospel Oak rail replacement bus services

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The rail replacement bus service between Gospel Oak and Seven Sisters was recently reviewed by TfL. The demand for this service was found to be low with between two and five people per bus on average. As a result of this some services have been reduced from four to three per hour. TfL will continue to monitor demand and adjust the provision of services as appropriate.

The TfL website has been updated to reflect this change and new printed timetables will be installed before the end of November.
