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

Why We Are Consulting

We recently developed proposals for route B12 and asked for feedback.

Route B12 (Erith – Joydens Wood)

The B12 currently runs every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday during the day, and every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday in the evening.

Proposals included introducing a Sunday service to run every 30 minutes throughout the day on route B12. This would provide a new service on Sundays for Joydens Wood, Coldblow, and parts of Northumberland Heath with links to Bexleyheath and a number of railway stations. The route would run clockwise round the Joydens Wood loop before noon and then anticlockwise as on other days of the week.

These proposals were developed because of stakeholder and passenger requests for a Sunday service, including requests from Bexley Council and Kent County Council.
