Tottenham Court Road

Closes 9 Nov 2018

Opened 28 Sep 2018

Overview

Route 14 (24hrs)

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 14 and its night service that would:

  • Change route 14 so it no longer runs between University College Hospital and Tottenham Court Road station and instead provides a link to the British Museum and Russell Square via Great Russell Street
  • Mean route 14 no longer serves Goodge Street station, Warren Street station, Euston Square station and University College Hospital

Why are we proposing this?

Route 14 currently runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week between Putney Heath and University College Hospital.

Over the last two years, daily usage on route 14 has decreased. The busiest point on route 14 is at South Kensington (Onslow Square) towards Tottenham Court Road station.

Route 14 has spare capacity between Tottenham Court Road and University College Hospital.

We are proposing to no longer run route 14 between University College Hospital and Tottenham Court Road station. This would improve reliability on route 14 and better match customer demand. This includes its night service. It would no longer serve Warren Street station, Euston Square station and Goodge Street station.

We would extend route 14 to Russell Square station, to maintain connections to the British Museum.

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):

  • the current route 14 bus stand at University College Hospital would no longer be needed for route 14 but would be used instead by route 134 – see proposed change to that route within this consultation
  • route 14 would use the currently vacant bus stand on Russell Square

How will this affect my journey?

Customers travelling to Euston Square, Warren Street and Goodge Street stations would need to interchange on Charing Cross road to the 24 or 29 to continue their journey.

Our Hopper fare means there is no longer an additional fare for changing onto additional buses 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 could be introduced in early 2019.

Route 134

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 134 and its night service that would:

  • Change route 134 so it no longer runs between Tottenham Court Road station and University College Hospital
  • No longer serve Gower Street, Tottenham Court Road or Bloomsbury Street

Why are we proposing this?

Route 134 shares the same roads as route 43. Route 134 is busy between Highgate and Warren Street, but has excess capacity after the station towards Tottenham Court Road.

We are proposing to no longer run route 134 between University College Hospital and Tottenham Court Road station, this change would also better match capacity to demand help improve resilience and reliability of route 134.
