Question

Davenant Foundation School and Debden Park High School are concerned that students could be deterred from attending after-school revision sessions or extra-curricular activities as the proposed new timings for the 677 bus service are unsuitable. Were these schools involved in discussion with Transport for London (TfL) on the timings for this route?

Both Davenant Foundation School and Debden Park High School were contacted before the route 167 consultation went live and were encouraged to respond.  Both schools provided submissions. 

The schedule for route 677 is yet to be confirmed. 

TfL will contact all schools involved, also including Roding Valley High School, to find out the best timings for the service to operate. Route 20 will also continue to serve the section between Loughton station and Debden Station, with buses every 15 minutes, providing access to both schools.
