Further to Question No: 2016/3398

Transport for London has been consulting on bus services on the Finchley Road. The consultation proposes to "extend route 13 to North Finchley in the north and divert it to Victoria in the south (replacing route 82)" as part of an effort to reduce traffic flow through the Finchley Road. However, these proposals in effect rename the 82 bus as 13 while scrapping the existing 13, a proposal that was heavily rejected in a consultation which was cancelled just before the 2015 election. Why is TfL trying to pull the wool over the eyes of local bus users, by reintroducing a previously unpopular plan in this way?
