The London Assembly’s Transport Committee recently published a report on highlighting how the Mayor and Transport for London’s proposals to increase capacity on the buses risk being seriously outpaced by rapid population growth. The report listed London’s top 10 most crowded bus routes. Beckenham’s 358 and 162 make the list, along with 2 more in the borough, Penge to London 176 and Bromley to Eltham 208. 4 out of 10 of London’s most crowded buses are in the London Borough of Bromley.
At our joint public meeting with West Beckenham Residents’ Association last week, we raised this with our London Assembly Rep James Cleverley. James said he would take this up with the Mayors Office when the bus routes contracts are renegotiated as this is the time changes can be made. We will keep you updated.
