Assembly Member Leonie Cooper Welcomes TfL Bus Consultation

Wandsworth residents urged to have their say on the future of bus services

Potential changes to bus services in Zone 1 could have a dramatic impact on congestion and air quality, according to new proposals set out by Transport for London (TfL).

Local Assembly Member, Leonie Cooper AM, welcomed the opportunity for people in Wansdworth to have their say, and encouraged them to ensure their voices are heard before the consultation closes as the end of this month.

Before Christmas, TfL launched a consultation to determine the future of 23 London bus routes with the aim of improving reliability, reducing congestion, and increasing the air quality in the capital.

The consultation closes on January 29th, with any changes coming in to effect in the summer of this year.

The routes affected are 3, 6, 8, 15, 22, 23, 25, 46, 73, 137, 172, 242, 332, 390, 425, 452, C2, N2, N3, N8, N15, N22 and N73. Of those, routes 137 run through Wandsworth

Local London Assembly Member Leonie Cooper said:
“Any action to reduce congestion and increase air quality in the capital must be seen as a positive step, and I welcome the opportunity for people all over London to have their say.

“However as the consultation was run over the busy Christmas period I urge Londoners to make time between now and January 29th to look carefully at the proposals and add their thoughts, especially if they now have to change buses and are at risk of being outside the one hour hopper fare window.”
