In response to the launch of Transport for London’s consultationon bus services in London, local London Assembly Member, Florence Eshalomi AM, said:
“Whilst these proposed changes will have implications for a number of commuters, I will be urging TfL to ensure the overall level of disruption will be kept to a minimum.
“We know that there is a need to balance demand for bus services across London whilst helping to reduce congestion and air pollution on the busiest streets in the capital. However, during the upcoming consultation, it is essential that TfL listen carefully to any concerns local people might have towards these proposals.
“I also want to see TfL coming forward with robust plans to mitigate anyproblems that might arise for passengers with disabilities or mobility issues.
“Over the coming months, I will holding TfL closely to account on this.”
