Have your say on the huge bus cuts proposed by Transport for London

Transport for London has proposed heavy cuts to London's bus services, affecting 23 boroughs, and scrapping 1 in every 20km of bus routes.

Caroline Pidgeon AM, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on today’s announcement of a consultation on extending further the Ultra Low Emission Zone, said:

As the government announced its plans to legalise private e-scooters on public roads, Caroline Pidgeon warned of the need for tough regulatory standards - including an acceptable speed limit, and safety measures such as lights.

Caroline stressed:

“Most importantly, it is vital that e-scooters remain illegal on pavements and that the police properly enforce the law in this area.

“The needs of pedestrians and especially blind people must not be overlooked.”
