Steve O’Connell AM: Thank you very much. On the consultation point, I am pleased that over the years I have been here to see an improvement in the way TfL has worked with local communities and I welcome the new Partnerships Team.
On a strategic point, I will not specially plead on individual routes, but for some considerable time we have been talking about the rebalancing of bus services from inner London to outer London, particularly zones 5 and 6, which many of us represent, where they are overdependent on bus services because there are no alternatives. I regret that over a period of time we have not seen an improvement. We have seen strategies and words about it, but, Mr Mayor, can I urge you to press a fast-forward button on what I call the “rebalancing” of bus services away from zones 1 and 2, where there are plenty of alternatives, out to zones 5 and 6? Can I have your response to that, please?
