HAVE YOUR SAY! Central London Bus Services Review - TfL Consultation
TfL are proposing a number of changes to Bus Services across Central London. Some of those changes may impact directly on residents in Wapping, but there are many other routes being withdrawn or changed that have wider implications. It is recommended that anyone who depends on buses ensures that they vote to make their views heard by TfL. The consultation on these changes closes on 9 November 2018.
Three of the changes that may impact Wapping residents are:
- 100 Bus: Proposal to extend the route to St Paul's Station (currently terminates at Museum of London). You should vote in favour of this if you wish the extension to take place. It is something many residents have called for as it will provide an easier interchange with buses 25, 11, and 8 into the West End. The stop is also less isolated than the termination at Museum of London.
- Withdrawl of the RV1. This bus links in with the 100 at Tower Gateway. It provides Wapping residents with walking difficulties, or parents with prams, the opportunity to link into South Bank Theatres, and Theatreland at Covent Garden with a single change of bus.
- Re-routing of the the route 11 bus. Under a new proposal, this will no longer serve Liverpool Street Station, and therefore not link with the 100 bus at Wormwood Street, which currently gives residents a reasonably short interchange (requiring only a single change) to get into Aldwych/Charing Cross, and the Museums and Trafalgar Square.
