Answer for Reduction to Bus Services in Lewisham

Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL will be amending services in central/inner London, matching demand while still supporting excellent access and complementing wider schemes, such as the transformation of Oxford Street. As a result, bus operated kilometres will be reduced by around 7 per cent by the end of the latest TfL business plan. This may lead to some reductions in Lewisham, although exactly how and where these reductions will be implemented is still being worked through.

We have plans for the following service changes for Lewisham to be implemented by spring 2018:

Route 36 - Weekend night frequencies will be reduced from operating every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes.

Route 53 - Weekend night frequencies will be reduced from operating every 12 minutes to every 15 minutes and weekday frequencies will be reduced from every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes.

Route 453 - Reduced weeknight frequencies to every 30 minutes and reduction of weekend night frequency from operating every 12 minutes to every 15 minutes.

Route 484 - Reduced frequencies from operating every 10 minutes to every 12 minutes during Monday to Saturday daytimes.
