Mayor's Question Time


Thursday, 14 December 2017


Question 2017/5182

Main question

Len Duvall

Are there any plans for any reductions to the bus services in Greenwich? Please list the affected routes.


The Mayor

As per MQ 5102, bus operated kilometres will be reduced by around 7 per cent by the end of the latest TfL business plan. TfL will be amending services in central/inner London, matching demand while still supporting excellent access and complementing wider schemes. This will likely lead to some reductions in Greenwich, although exactly how and where these reductions will be implemented is still being worked through. The following service reductions for Greenwich will be implemented by spring 2018:


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

Route 161 - Frequencies reduced from operating every 10 minutes to every 11 minutes during weekday peaks.
