Question

Eighty-one per cent of respondents to the consultation on the future of the 167 bus service said that truncating this route will make their journeys longer. Has Transport for London (TfL) assessed the likelihood that local residents may decide to switch to making their trip by car instead of bus as a result of the changes it is proposing? If so, will you provide me with the results?

No specific modelling was carried out on mode shift.  However Transport for London (TfL) route 20 will continue to serve nearly all of the section in Essex no longer served by route 167.  TfL's response to the issues raised during consultation on this scheme is available at: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/167/.
