Written response from the Mayor

Access to Northwick Park Hospital from Harrow Road is currently available using bus route 18 to Sudbury and then changing onto route 182. Passengers can now make this interchange for free using the new ‘Hopper’ fare. In addition, bus route 483 was introduced in September 2016, linking Northwick Park Hospital to Harrow and Wembley, and providing additional connections, frequency and capacity with the borough of Brent.

 

TfL is conducting a strategic review of bus services to hospitals with the aim of improving these vital public transport links. My Deputy Mayor for Transport has asked TfL to look closely at connections to Northwick Park Hospital as part of this work.
