In response to local demands, Transport for London (TfL) has put in place an official consultation on plans to extend their Sunday bus service in the Bromley area. If you want to show your support for the plans, you have until 10th July to submit your opinion.
The proposed changes
The consultation centres on proposals to expand the provision on the 352 and 354 bus routes to include a Sunday service.
Route 352 runs from Bromley North Station to Sainsbury’s at Lower Sydenham. Route 354 operates from Penge to Bromley North Station. Both routes currently run from Mondays to Saturdays at 20-minute intervals in the daytime and every half-hour in the evenings; there is no Sunday service.
After requests from a number of stakeholder groups including Bromley Council and passengers, TfL is looking at the viability of running both routes on Sundays. The Sunday service would operate every half-hour on both of the routes. The stopping arrangements wouldn’t change, and the new service would be introduced this September.
