Travel disruption notes

DENMARK STREET, WC2: Routes 14 176 are on diversion towards Putney Heath and Penge until 18:00 on Monday 4 July due to urban realm works. Buses are diverted via Earnshaw Street, New Oxford Street, and Charing Cross Road, missing the stop Tottenham Court Road Station.

Central London Bus Review: We are consulting on withdrawing some individual bus routes or sections of routes where they are covered by other high-frequency services or are close to alternative stops. These proposals aim to ensure we still have a strong bus service to support London’s economic recovery, while simplifying the network to ensure buses are operating frequently and reliably in the areas that need them most. The changes being consulted on are intended to cause as little disruption to passengers as possible, while making the required savings. The Hopper Fare will continue to allow customers to change between buses within 60 minutes of starting journeys without having to pay more.
