Overview

Buses play a crucial role in making London a more prosperous and connected city, connecting Londoners to their workplaces, education, families, friends, shopping, and leisure. We continuously review and adapt the bus network to ensure that services reflect changing customer needs.

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 can’t easily be walked or cycled. It is also London’s most flexible mode of public transport, and we continuously review and adapt the bus network to ensure that services reflect changing customer needs.

A section of bus route 336 in Lewisham currently operates on a ‘hail and ride’ basis. Hail and ride is where you can get on or off the bus by signalling to the driver that you want to get on or off the bus at a certain points along the road rather than using a designated bus stop. We are proposing to change this section to fixed stops to improve safety and accessibility.

As part of this consultation, we are also consulting on a route change to a small section of the route in Downham for safety reasons.

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 together with our equality objectives and how we propose to mitigate any negative impacts.

The impacts and mitigations described within the EqIA be considered as part of the decision-making process on the proposals. The EqIA will be kept under review and updated to reflect any relevant new information, including information which comes in as part of the consultation process.

A copy of the full initial EqIA document can be found in the ‘Document library’.
