TfL’s 2019 business plan which was published in December 2018, predicts bus speeds will decline even further than had previously been anticipated, increasing journey times.
While the cuts to services is under consultation, some bus services have already been altered or curtailed while others are due to be slashed in order to help TfL balance its budgets.
2019 doesn’t look too good for bus passengers in London. There are obvious warnings that passengers will face longer journeys on fewer and shorter routes.
For many passengers there is not a choice and they will have to continue to use slow services and suffer the inconvenience.
