Euston Road

Opened 28 Sep 2018

Overview

Route 59

Our proposals

We review the bus network regularly to ensure services remain efficient, safe, and reliable for our customers.

We have developed a proposal for route 59 that would:

  • Change route 59 so it no longer runs between King’s Cross and Euston Bus Station
  • Remove two additional journeys on route 59 towards Euston in the morning peak and an additional journey towards Brixton in the evening peak

Why are we proposing this?

Route 59 parallels route 91 between King’s Cross and Aldwych.

Usage on both routes has decreased and both routes are running with excess capacity. We are therefore proposing to no longer run route 59 between King’s Cross and Euston Bus station.

These proposals will improve resilience and reliability on route 59, as well as better matching customer demand.

A summary of our analysis of this route and the data supporting the case for change can be found here in the Central London bus services supporting material.

Bus stands (locations where buses wait between journeys):

  • We would repurpose a route 476 bus stand at Euston Bus Station for route 59
  • Repurpose a route 476 bus stand at King’s Cross, York Way for route 59

How will this affect my journey?

Customers wanting to travel to King’s Cross could interchange at Euston to route 91 or many other routes.

Our Hopper fare would ensure there would be no additional fare for doing this within one hour. 

When would these changes start?

We will review and use the feedback from this consultation to help inform and shape these proposals. We may decide to change our proposals in light of comments or we may decide to go ahead as proposed. However, if we significantly revise our proposals we will run a new consultation to find out what people think.

If we go ahead with these proposals, they would be introduced in early 2019.

Route 476

Our proposals

We review the bus network regularly to ensure services remain efficient, safe and reliable for our customers.

We have developed a proposal for route 476 that would:

  • Change route 476 so it no longer runs between Euston Bus Station and King’s Cross Station
  • Reduce frequencies on route 476 from every 8 to 10 minutes, Monday to saturday daytimes, to better match demand.

Why are we proposing this?

Route 476 runs between Northumberland Park and Euston station. It runs on the same roads as route 73 between Stoke Newington and Euston Station.

Both of these routes are currently running with excess capacity. These proposals will improve resilience and reliability of route 476.

We are also proposing to reduce frequencies on route 476 from every 8 to every 10 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytimes, to better match demand.
