I’m writing to you as a resident, business or amenity group based in Camden, the City of London or the City of Westminster. Please do view our proposals, there a number of routes, including those which you may use, that are part of the review.
TfL’s reliance on passenger fares for the majority of its income, means the effect of the pandemic on TfL’s finances has been devastating, requiring Government support to keep public transport in London operating. The Government set a number of conditions before it would provide emergency funding to keep TfL operating, including requiring a plan to set out how we would achieve significant financial savings.
We have had to undertake a detailed review of London's bus network in order to achieve these significant financial savings required by the Government.
As part of this work, we’ve reviewed key bus corridors from the north, south, east, and west into the centre of the city. This is because demand has reduced over the years on some roads leading into central and inner London due to changing travel patterns which have been accelerated by the pandemic.
Today we have launched a public consultation that proposes a number of changes to bus routes into central London, and would like to hear your views. The changes being consulted on are intended to cause as little disruption to passengers as possible, while making the savings required by the Government.
For further information, to see which bus routes are included in our proposals and to complete our online survey, please visit haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/busreview
We are keen to hear from anyone that wants to comment on this consultation.
