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.


What is proposed our route by route guide

How these proposals may change your bus journey

Our proposals are designed to ensure we can support increased demand for bus services that will come in the development as new homes and communities continue to be built.

Summary of the proposals:

  • Extend route 91 to Wood Green Station via Haringey Heartlands from its current terminus on Tottenham Lane in Crouch End
  • Re-route the N91 to serve Haringey Heartlands instead of running on Wood Green High Road
  • Withdraw route 123 from Wood Green High Road
  • Withdraw route 232 from Wood Green High Road and extend the service from Wood Green Station to a new terminus in Haringey Heartlands

Equalities Impact Assessment

We have undertaken an initial Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA) for these proposals. The EqIA identifies and examines in more detail what positive and negative impacts these proposals may have on individuals with protected characteristics, and how any negative impacts might be mitigated.

    What Buses will run between Turnpike Lane station and Wood Green station

    Susie123 asked 8 months ago

    Thank you for your question.

    Wood Green High Road would continue to have a high level of bus service with the following bus routes running between Wood Green Station and Turnpike Lane Station: 29, 67, 121, 141, 144, 184, 221, 230, 329, W4 and N29. 

    Approximately 80 buses per hour currently run in each direction on Wood Green High Road during peak hours. If the proposed changes are introduced, there would be approximately 69 buses per hour in each direction.

    Thank you for your question. The roads and public areas you mention in your question are not TfL administered. The London Borough of Haringey are the highway authority who will be response for maintenance and any schemes to improve the areas or change them.

    We have checked with the borough and to the best of our knowledge they are not proposing any improvements or changes to the areas you mention. However they are in the very early stages of a study for this area and the base model is currently being reviewed by TfL. 

    It is too early in the process to know what the study may identify as practical in the sense of any possible proposals for changes to roads or pavements or public space in the areas mentioned. 

  • Share Hello, I am very supportive of this scheme to extend the 91/N91 route! However, while other buses along the route in my local area (N7 7RA) like the 41 and 210 have accurate timings at bus stops, and frequent arrivals, the 91 arrivals are rarely on the signs and seem to come haphazardly. This can result in overcrowding at peak travel times, which route extension may exacerbate. I was hoping that the route extension may help resolve these problems by providing for more frequent busses along the route or at least more accurate time estimates at stops along the way?

    Thank you for your question. Your feedback is very valuable to us. Please submit a formal response to the consultation (if you have not done already?) so that we can capture your views related to the proposed changes to the bus routes, as well as anything else you may wish to add.

    To answer your question: TfL tries to have all bus routes run frequently enough to meet the demand for a service. Route 91 is scheduled to run at a frequency of 6 buses per hour (a bus every 10 minutes). There are no plans to change the frequency of the route if it is extended to Wood Green. 

    The existing scheduled frequency provides enough capacity for the number of passengers using the service, we expect this to remain if the route is extended. However, disruption caused by unexpected traffic congestion, road works and accidents can result in buses with more people on them if there are gaps in service. 

    We work with operating companies to help ensure that routes run reliably and to schedule wherever possible. 

    We will monitor the service on route 91 if the proposed extension to Wood Green goes ahead.

    Alex69420 asked 9 months ago

    Thank you for your questions. As part of the proposals, route 232 would be extended from Wood Green Station to Haringey Heartlands after being cut back from Turnpike Lane Station. The proposals do not include further plans to extend route 123.
