Bus service proposal: route 370

Closed 20 Jan 2012

Opened 20 Dec 2011

Results Updated 8 May 2012

Following a review of route 370, Transport for London (TfL) consulted on the full conversion of route 370 from single to double deck buses in order to provide sufficient capacity for the number of passengers who use the service.

A total of 19 responses were received, 16 from members of the public and three from stakeholders. Of these,  17 were generally supportive, one was against and one neutral. 

After carefully considering all responses, we went ahead with the change. Double deck vehicles have been in full operation on the route since 5 March 2012.

The London bus network is kept under regular review. As part of this, we develop proposals for changes to services. 

Why we consulted

We developed proposals for route 370 and asked for your views.

Route 370 (Romford – Lakeside)

Route 370 runs between Romford and Lakeside Shopping Centre every 15 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes and every 30 minutes during the evening and on Sundays, using 55-capacity single deck buses.

In addition, there is one return journey which runs on schooldays from Romford to Corbets Tey in the morning, returning to Romford in the afternoon.  This is operated using 87-capacity double deck buses.

We reviewed capacity on route 370 following recent feedback from stakeholders and passengers and proposed increasing capacity on the route by replacing the current single deck buses with double deck buses.
