Transport for London introduces changes to routes: ‘Healthier’ bus routes in Croydon

Construction work in Croydon town centre is the reason for the changes in bus routes which came into effect last week.

A Transport for London (TfL) boss has said that changes to routes have been made to create a ‘more pleasant’ environment for residents.

On November 2, changes to bus routes in the town were introduced following consultation which ended in January.

The main change on most routes is that buses now no longer travel through the town centre.

The changes were made due to construction in the town centre, and TfL said the new routes would help maintain the reliability of bus services.

Nearly 1,500 people responded to the consultation, with 955 concerned about longer journey times and 913 about more interchanges needed in their journey.

But Transport for London (TfL) said that following the consultation, changes would not be made to routes 154, 75 and 403.

Geoff Hobbs, director of public transport service planning at TfL, said: “These changes will boost the reliability of buses by rationalising the network.

“This will help to create a more pleasant, healthier environment for local residents and visitors, while maintaining existing links across Croydon.”

    I think it’s silly building new places and more than half will be private and temporary plus homes built lately you have to buy them, they should at least build more council or housing homes for tenants on benefits for permanent living not always temporary accommodation
