There was no specific modelling of Hopper usage. However, TfL did analyse passenger journeys.  The route truncation affects approximately 830 journeys per day which can be currently made on a direct route 167 bus and would in future require a change.  4,587 journeys would continue to be possible by using direct TfL bus services. Some of the passengers whose journeys are affected will already be using a multi-journey ticket such as a bus pass, a Travelcard, or a Freedom Pass, or travelling on a concession and those using pay as you go would be able to take advantage of the Hopper fare.

TfL's response to the issues raised during consultation on this scheme is available on their website: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/167/.
