Have your say on Bromley’s buses as London Assembly launches transport investigation

PUBLISHED: 11:46 03 June 2013 | UPDATED: 11:46 03 June 2013

Bromley residents are being asked to share their experience of bus travel as the London Assembly launches an investigation into services.

With passenger numbers rising and investment flat-lining, assembly member Len Duvall is asking commuters to fill in a short survey in order to improve the service offered by Transport for London (TfL).

He said: “Investment to improve and expand bus services has flat-lined under Boris and as London’s population is growing at a rate equivalent to two full buses each day, we need to find out how Londoners will travel around the capital and what their opinions of bus services are.

“We need bus users help to ensure the London Assembly puts forward strong recommendations to the Mayor on how we can make bus services in London suit the needs of the people that use them.

“TfL’s business plan does not provide for expansion of the bus network, and unless plans are secured to deal with extra passengers, London buses run the risk of entering a period of decline.”
