Question

When TfL chose to cut back on the frequency of the 384 bus route, TfL assured me that the concerns of my constituents whose children rely on the bus to travel to JCOSS were unfounded. In fact the bus is frequently delayed and on 7th March the 8:10 from Cockfosters did not turn up at all. Do you agree this is unacceptable and what will you do about it?

I am sorry for the continued delays on route 384. Transport for London (TfL) has told me that a number of utility works may have disrupted the service in recent weeks. I have asked TfL to work with the 384’s operator to look at why parents of children attending JCOSS, have found this service unreliable lately and how this might be improved. I also understand that the utility works have now been completed, and hope this brings about an improvement for bus customers.
