    Thank you for your question.

    This is a public consultation process designed to capture all feedback from relevant stakeholders. Your feedback will be noted, along with all others received to the consultation (including responses from businesses, local boroughs, residents and other organisations). This will happen before a final decision is made on whether or not the proposal is implemented or not. 

    Kind regards

    John L. asked 3 months ago

    Hello and thank you for the question.

    No decision has been made yet whether it would be pure electric, hybrid or diesel powered buses on this route. But if this proposed route is introduced, all buses that will operate on it will be fully compliant with ULEZ regulations and meet Euro VI standards for emissions.

    Hello and thank you for your questions

    For this scheme, as explained in the consultation material, the bus stop locations have not been agreed and the designs of the bus stops have not been produced yet. 

    TfL's official bus stop design guidance is available at this link: https://content.tfl.gov.uk/bus-stop-design-guidance.pdf and the organisation will abide by its principles when designing and installing new bus stops.

    achyutchaudhary asked 3 months ago

    Hi there, thank you for your questions. 

    As you have highlighted, the routes remain suspended, but a consultation would be carried out if they were to be considered for being permanently withdrawn. 

    TfL continues to monitor and review the night bus service across the network.

    Thank you for your question.

    The Night Tube network does not currently serve this part of northwest London. The proposed N518 would cover areas that are served by the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines during the day.

    When will routes 114 and 183 run 24-hour weekends again?

    Shayan24 asked 4 months ago

    Thank you for your question.

    The weekend-only night services on routes 114 and 183 were temporarily suspended in March 2020 in response to the temporary withdrawal of Night Tube services, the fall in demand as a result of the pandemic, and subsequent lockdown restrictions. 

    Both routes’ night services remain temporarily suspended and no decision on their reintroduction has been made.

    TfL continues to monitor and review the night bus service across the network and would consult if the routes’ night services (or indeed any other bus routes) were proposed to be permanently withdrawn.

    Shayan24 asked 4 months ago

    Thank you for your question.

    The N518 will provide new transport links at night to Ruislip, Eastcote, Rayners Lane, Northolt Park and Central London. Residents in Alperton and Wembley Park can use existing night routes 297 and N83 and interchange onto route N518 at Wembley Central to access these locations. 

    Similarly, residents in South Harrow can use existing night route N140 and interchange onto route N518 on Petts Hill to access these locations.

    Good afternoon, thank you for the question

    Subject to the result of the consultation, if the N518 is approved to be introduced without any changes to how it was presented in the consultation, we would be aiming to introduce this route towards the end of 2024.

    How long will the journey be in travel time from Ruislip Manor to Trafalgar Square? And in cost?

    Yvon asked 4 months ago

    Dear Yvon

    Thank you for your enquiry

    The journey could take between 1 hr 15 mins and 1 hr 45 mins and will vary depending on traffic conditions and days of the week.

    The cost will be £1.75 like all other London bus journeys and using the the Hopper will give you unlimited bus journeys, made within one hour of touching in. 

    This allows you to use other routes as part of your journey with the N518 pay £1.75 in total.

    Will the bus be wheelchair accessible?

    Yvon asked 4 months ago

    Hello Yvon

    Thank you for your question. Yes, any bus that would be used on the proposed N518 route would be wheelchair accessible. Every scheduled TfL bus has one wheelchair space, with wheelchair users have priority in these spaces and buggy users are required to make space if necessary.

    Please see https://content.tfl.gov.uk/accessible-travel-web.pdf for further details.
