London TravelWatch comment on TfL’s concerns about a return to the 1970s for public transport

18 November 2021

Commenting on TfL’s concerns about a return to the 1970s for public transport, Director of London TravelWatch Emma Gibson said: ‘Millions of people rely on London’s buses and Tubes every day, and maintaining a high frequency service will be an important factor in London’s recovery. Research shows that when you cut the frequency of buses and Tubes, fewer people use them, which in turn leads to less income to fund the services which you do run. Fewer people using public transport also means more people using their cars, which is a problem for congestion; air pollution and climate change. A fully laden bus can take up to 75 cars off the road, which is a win-win for everyone.’
