London’s bus network is our most affordable, accessible, and available form of public transport and offers the main sustainable alternative to cars for those journeys that cannot easily be walked or cycled. It is also London’s most flexible mode of public transport.

We continuously review and adapt the bus network to reflect changing customer needs. This includes proposing changes to existing bus routes, so services operate in areas where our customers need them most, including serving new homes and emerging new communities such as those in the Haringey Heartlands development.

Read more about how we are increasing the number of bus journeys by making bus travel better, faster and greener in our Bus action plan.

This transformation is being led by the London Borough of Haringey and Berkeley Group, delivered by St William. Our ‘Planning for the future’ section contains more information about buses in the Haringey Heartlands area. You can also visit the website for further details.

    Photograph of route 91 double deck busHaringey Heartlands is a major development in the London Borough of Haringey, close to Wood Green town centre. The development will provide a new urban quarter in the heart of the borough, with regeneration centring on the Clarendon development on the former gas holder site, covering an area of approximately 12 hectares.

    We have worked with the London Borough of Haringey and its partners to develop proposals to re-structure the local bus network so the area is better served with good access to public transport. The proposals are designed to be introduced over time as the development expands, with new highways being completed and people moving into the area.

    If we proceed with the proposals, temporary routeings and stopping arrangements may be required until the road network within Haringey Heartlands has been fully constructed by LB Haringey and its partners. This includes any bus infrastructure needed within Haringey Heartlands. This is expected to be late-spring 2024.

    The following sections include a series of maps showing the current and proposed routeing for each service.

    On our maps, bus stop locations marked as “proposed” represent locations where we intend to site a new stop and one does not already exist.

  • Route 91

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Our proposals

    Route 91 currently runs between Tottenham Lane in Crouch End and Trafalgar Square.

    We propose to extend route 91 from its current terminus on Tottenham Lane to Wood Green Station via the Haringey Heartlands development. This would provide a new bus service through the centre of Haringey Heartlands with new direct journey opportunities to Wood Green, Crouch End, Nag’s Head and locations in central London such as King’s Cross, Holborn and Trafalgar Square.

    The proposed extension would run on the following roads between Crouch End and Wood Green:

    • Tottenham Lane, Church Lane (towards Wood Green), Turnpike Lane and Hornsey Park Road, Clarendon Road, Mary Neuner Road, Western Road, Mayes Road and Station Road. The route would run to Wood Green Station, bus stop G on the high road, where it would terminate
    • Route 91 would operate on the same roads in both directions between Wood Green and Crouch End, except in the Hornsey area where it would run on Church Lane towards Wood Green and the northern end of Tottenham Lane towards Trafalgar Square

    Current frequencies would remain as they are. The existing routeing between Crouch End and Trafalgar Square would not change. Proposed bus stop names and locations are indicative for consultation purposes.

    A map showing proposals for routes 91 and N91 can be found below.

    A linear diagram showing the current and proposed route 91 can be found below.


    How these proposals may change your bus journey

    • Towards Wood Green, route 91 would newly serve existing bus stops S and T on Tottenham Lane, D on Hornsey High Street, E on Turnpike Lane, B on Station Road and G on Wood Green High Road. The current last stop on Tottenham Lane, Z1, would no longer be served; however, it would be replaced by stop S which is a distance of approximately 70 metres from stop Z1
    • Towards Trafalgar Square, route 91 would newly serve existing bus stops F on Lordship Lane, A on Station Road, H on Turnpike Lane and U and V on Tottenham Lane
    • New bus stops in both directions are planned within Haringey Heartlands on Mary Neuner Road and Western Road, providing a connection to the nearby centres of Wood Green and Crouch End, as well as to and from central London
    • Customers using route 91 would also have new direct journey opportunities between Wood Green and Haringey Heartlands, Crouch End, Caledonian Road and Barnsbury Station, Kings Cross Station, The British Library and Theatreland (Drury Lane)
    • All existing bus stops on route 91 would continue to be served (with the exception of stop Z1 on Tottenham Lane, as described above)

  • Route N91

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Our proposals

    Route N91 currently runs between Cockfosters Station and Trafalgar Square.

    We propose to re-route the N91 via the Haringey Heartlands development instead of Turnpike Lane and Wood Green High Road. This would provide a new bus service through the centre of Haringey Heartlands, helping to ensure the development has access to the bus network at night.

    The proposed changes apply to the section of the route between the Wightman Road bus stops on Turnpike Lane and Wood Green Station only.

    The N91 would run on Hornsey Park Road, Clarendon Road, Mary Neuner Road, Western Road, Mayes Road and Station Road to Wood Green Station.

    The existing routeing between Trafalgar Square and Turnpike Lane, and between Wood Green Station and Cockfosters Station would not change.

    Current frequencies would remain as they are. Proposed bus stop names and locations are indicative for consultation purposes.

    How these proposals may change your bus journey

    • Bus stops N and Q on Turnpike Lane and L, J, H, MA, K and G on Wood Green High Road would no longer be served by route N91. Existing customers would still be able to complete their journey to or from Turnpike Lane or Wood Green High Road on one bus but may be up to 700 metres further from their origin or destination. Alternatively, customers may be able to travel on route N29 to and from Wood Green High Road or route N41 to and from Turnpike Lane
    • Route N91 would newly serve existing stops A and B on Station Road at Wood Green. New bus stops in both directions are planned within Haringey Heartlands on Mary Neuner Road and Western Avenue, providing a connection to the nearby centres of Wood Green and Crouch End, as well as to and from central London
    • Route N29 would continue to provide direct links between central London (and Nag’s Head) and Wood Green High Road. Route N41 would continue to provide direct links between central London (and Nag’s Head) and Turnpike Lane
    • Customers using route N91 would have new direct night-time journey opportunities between Haringey Heartlands and Bounds Green, Arnos Green, Cockfosters and King’s Cross stations, including interchange with Night Tube at these locations

  • Withdraw route 123 from Wood Green High Road

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Our proposals

    Bus route 123 currently runs between Wood Green Station and Ilford.

    Route 123 is one of 12 day-time bus routes that currently serve Wood Green High Road. A total of approximately 80 buses per hour run in each direction during peak hours; a level of service higher than is required to provide enough capacity for customers.

    To reduce the number of buses running on Wood Green High Road, and to help improve the pedestrian environment, we propose to:

    • Withdraw route 123 from Wood Green High Road only, by cutting back the section from Wood Green Station to Turnpike Lane Station. This change would apply to the day and night service

    A map showing proposals for route 123 can be found below.

    A linear diagram showing the current and proposed route 123 can be found below.

    How these proposals may change your bus journey

    • Route 123 customers who currently use bus stops on Wood Green High Road would be able to access the high road from Turnpike Lane Station or change bus to complete their journey. Interchange between bus routes would be possible at Turnpike Lane Bus Station
    • Bus stops L, J, H (northbound) and bus stops MA, K and G (southbound) on Wood Green High Road would no longer be served by route 123
    • Current frequencies would remain as they are

  • Re-route the 232 to Haringey Heartlands

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Our proposals

    Bus route 232 currently runs between St. Raphael’s Estate in Neasden and Turnpike Lane Station.

    We propose to re-route the 232 to serve Haringey Heartlands, terminating in the development instead of Turnpike Lane Station.

    Route 232 would no longer serve Wood Green High Road. The routeing between Wood Green Station and St. Raphael’s Estate would not change as part of these proposals

    Re-routeing would provide a new bus route for the Haringey Heartlands development, creating new journey opportunities to the north of the borough, and to other key locations such as Arnos Grove Station and Brent Cross Shopping Centre. The proposed re-routeing would also help to reduce the number of buses running on Wood Green High Road.

    From Wood Green Station, route 232 would run on Station Road, Mayes Road, Brook Road and Silsoe Road where it would terminate. Towards Wood Green, it would run on Silsoe Road, Coburg Road, Mayes Road and Station Road.

    Brook Road and Silsoe Road are expected to be closed until early-2028 to allow construction to take place. Route 232 would run on an alternative temporary routeing until both roads are open. From Wood Green Station, it would run on Station Road, Mayes Road and Coburg where it would terminate. Towards Wood Green, it would run on Coburg Road, Western Road, Mayes Road and Station Road.

    Current frequencies would remain as they are. Proposed bus stop names and locations are indicative for consultation purposes.

    A map showing proposals for route 232 can be found below.

    A linear diagram showing the current and proposed route 232 can be found below.

    How these proposals may change your bus journey

    • Route 232 would newly serve existing stops A and B on Station Road at Wood Green. New bus stops in both directions are planned within Haringey Heartlands on Silsoe Road/Coburg Road (and on Western Road when the temporary routeing is in place. This would provide new direct bus links to Haringey Heartlands as well as the nearby centre of Wood Green
    • New direct journey opportunities would also be provided between Haringey Heartlands and key locations such as Brent Cross and Neasden
    • All bus stops on route 232 between Wood Green Station and St Raphael’s Estate would continue to be served
    • Route 232 customers who currently use bus stops on Wood Green High Road would be able to access the High Road from stops at Wood Green Station or change bus to complete their journey. Interchange between bus routes would be possible at Wood Green Station
