What are the proposals?

We’re consulting on three proposals - please click on the links below to find out more about them.

Proposal One

Merge U1 and U3 to create a new bus route from Ruislip to Heathrow.

Proposal Two

Reroute U2 in two areas:

a. Reroute U2 to West Drayton station to give new links to the Elizabeth line, it would no longer stop at Brunel University.

b. Serve Oak Farm Estate in North Hillingdon at all operational times, not just middays Mondays to Saturdays.

Proposal Three

a. Improve bus services in Ruislip by extending E7 from Ruislip West End Road to Bishop Ramsey High School/Highgrove leisure centre.

b. To simplify route through Ruislip town centre, the E7 would no longer stop at Ruislip station, Wood Lane, Ickenham Road or Pembroke Road.

This map gives an overview of the four proposed changes.



Equalities Impact Assessment

Our Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA) identifies:

  • The affects these proposals could have on people
  • How we propose to minimise any negative impacts

After we’ve considered all comments, the EqIA will be reviewed and may be updated.

We use the EqIA to help us decide if, and how, we should proceed with these proposals.


Background

People boarding a London bus

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 network to reflect changing customer needs, so buses are where our customers need them most.

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

Other projects include 12% more countdown signs at bus stops in every London borough.
