Stop the Bus Cuts

Stop Labour's Bus Cuts to Wandsworth

  • Current Your details
  • End

Mayor Sadiq Khan and Labour controlled Transport for London (TfL) are proposing to scrap a number of routes across London including those serving Putney and Roehampton. In total 250 buses and 16 routes will be axed.

Locally this will have a devastating impact on local bus services. The No 14 Bus would be completely scrapped. 

The N72 night bus which serves Putney Pier, Barnes Station, Roehampton University and Queen Mary’s Hospital is also being ended. 

The No 430 between Danebury Avenue and Victoria & Albert Museum - via Roehampton, Putney - would be rerouted north of the river. 

Bus No 74 which operates between Putney Exchange and Baker Street Station - via Fulham - would also vanish. 

Buses are the backbone of our transport network and are critically important for many to get to work, school, medical appointments or the shops. 

Buses reduce car use, congestion, and pollution. The disruption to these popular and established routes means forcing people back to using cars or massively increased travel times using busier buses, with day-to-day commuters, disabled people and parents with pushchairs vying for limited space.

The Government has helped bail out TfL to the tune of almost £5bn since the pandemic to take into account lower passenger numbers. 

We believe Mayor Khan needs to rethink these proposals please help us to stand up for local residents by signing our petition today.

We, the undersigned, call upon The Mayor of London and TfL to urge re think the proposed changes to buses such as the No 14, N72, 430 and 74 which will impact of residents from Putney and Roehampton.
