Transport for London’s (TfL) Business Plan outlines how the bus network will support London’s growth and achieve the Mayor’s 2041 target of 80 per cent of all journeys made on foot, by bike or using public transport. The plan also includes how bus service mileage will change over the next five years (see pp81, figure 23), including a split between outer London (growth of 2 per cent by 2023/24) and inner London (reduction of up to 10 per cent by 2023/24 to enable outer London growth).

Planned changes in bus service mileage is not available by borough or for north/south of the river. Changes in bus service mileage will however broadly follow population change, as the key driver of bus demand.
