Proposed extension of route 470

Closed 12 Sep 2019

Opened 18 Jul 2019


We keep the bus network under regular review, to provide the best service possible for customers in the most cost effective way.

We are proposing to make changes to route 470 by extending the route to Epsom Hospital and would like your feedback.

What are we proposing?

We are proposing to extend the 470 to serve Epsom Hospital. This would improve access to Epsom Hospital, and provide a more direct route between Sutton Hospital and Epsom Hospital.

Our proposals would not impact the frequency or size of the bus.

The proposal means the 470 would no longer terminate at Epsom Clock Tower. Instead the 470 would serve Epsom Hospital via Woodcote Green Road and back to Epsom via Dorking Road.

Impact on protected groups

We have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA). The EqIA examines what impact (positive or negative) all of the proposed route changes have on customers with characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010.

We consider the impacts of bus service change proposals on equality groups throughout the planning process ensuring, where possible, effective mitigations are in place where no viable alternative is available. The EqIA can be found below.
