Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on the decision confirmed by the Mayor to totally scrap the RV1 bus service from 15th June 2019, said:
“In the same week as the start of the Ultra Low Emission Zone the Mayor has made the decision to cut one of the few zero-emission bus routes in London, serving an area with some of the worst air pollution in the capital. The total lack of joined up thinking is staggering.
“Even the evidence of growing passenger numbers on the RV1 bus route has been ignored.”
“This foolish decision by the Mayor to scrap the RV1 bus route will not be forgotten.”
