TfL Press Statement Questioned

Roger French has been examining TfL’s Press Office statement proclaiming that they have “further new proposals for more than 400,000km increase in buses services in outer London to strengthen alternatives to private cars and maximise benefits of ULEZ”.

Apparently these changes are “a key part of the Mayor’s commitment to improving the bus network in outer London with more than one million extra kilometres of bus services”.

However, Roger says "When you analyse the changes announced yesterday in those four Boroughs, I suspect most passengers won’t notice any difference to their bus journey. Because there won’t be one".

He also comments on the new electronic timetable cases at bus stops which offer a push button selection of real time information.
