Proposals

1. Introduce a new school bus service for Bolder Academy and Nishkam School in Isleworth

Transport for London are thinking of starting a new school bus service between Ivybridge Estate and Syon Lane (near Bolder Academy and Nishkam School).

School route 618 would run from Ivybridge Estate via Twickenham Road, Worton Road, Bridge Road and Syon Lane.

There would be two journeys each school day, one in the morning (to Syon Lane) and one in the afternoon (to Ivybridge Estate).

Subject to consultation, the service would start running in early 2024.This route would use the same roads and bus stops as the H28 in this area.

Route 618 would provide new direct links to Isleworth schools for students living south of Syon Lane, along London Road, Bridge Road, Worton Road, Twickenham Road and Summerwood Road.


2. Proposal to extend E1 from Ealing Broadway to Osterley Tesco


Map showing proposed E1 extension to Osterley(click on map for larger image)

To improve links to Ealing Broadway, we’re proposing to extend the E1 bus route via Ealing Road, Great West Road and Syon Lane.

This would offer new direct links and extra capacity between north and south Ealing, between Greenford, Drayton Green, Ealing Broadway, South Ealing, North Brentford, Great West Road and Osterley.

The E1 bus route currently runs from Greenford, Clifton Road to Ealing Broadway, Haven Green.


Background

Buses play a crucial role in making London a more prosperous city, connecting Londoners to their work, education, families, friends, shopping, and leisure.

London’s bus network is our most affordable and accessible type of public transport. It’s a sustainable alternative to cars, for journeys that can’t be walked or cycled.

We continuously review and adapt the bus network to reflect changing customer needs. So, buses are where our customers need them most, including serving new homes and expanding schools.

The Mayor’s committed to expanding outer London’s bus network, to strengthen alternatives to private cars and maximise the benefits of expanding the Ultra Low Emission Zone.

Our Bus Action Plan is about increasing the number of bus journeys, by making bus travel better, faster and greener. We continue to grow our fleet of zero-emission buses, with over 950 so far. The whole fleet will be converted by 2034 (possibly 2030, subject to government funding). Other projects include 12% more countdown signs at bus stops in every London borough.

Connecting with London's deaf community on our consultations

To enhance how we engage and consult with London's deaf community we are trialling a British Sign Language (BSL) consultation conversation service. This service will allow us to have a two-way BSL translated discussion on any aspect of this consultation with a BSL speaker.

To request a BSL consultation conversation please contact us at haveyoursay@tfl.gov.uk and we will be in contact to arrange this at a convenient time.

Following this trial, we will evaluate the service to determine if this is something we are able to offer on other consultations in the future.


What happens next

We’ll consider all the responses we receive and prepare a consultation report after the consultation ends on Wednesday 18 October 2023. The report will be published on our website in late 2023.
