London Mayor Sadiq Khan is proposing to cut a number of essential bus routes across the capital including the 24 and 16 which have served Pimlico for decades.
The move to cut these lifeline bus routes has been described as ‘hypocritical’ following the Mayor’s increased spending on his own PR and ‘self-promoting’ foreign trips.
These bus routes are essential to local residents and your local Conservatives are fighting to save them. That’s why we’ve launched this petition and are urging as many people to sign as possible.
Time and time again residents across St James's ward have been let down by the Mayor and his woeful management of Transport for London (TfL). This affront to our community is the latest in a long line of inaction which includes his failure to tackle Tube noise, the delay in delivering Crossrail, the Park Lane cycle lane which causes traffic to back up to Victoria, and the crippling expansion of ULEZ.
Now is the time to stand up to the Mayor and say no to taking away the number 11!
Commenting on the Mayor's plans, St James's Councillor Tim Mitchell said:
“St. James’s is well served by the Tube but the bus network, especially the 11 and 24, provides an essential service to the thousands of residents and visitors who crisscross the ward every day.
"Many people with disabilities and the elderly rely on these buses to get to vital appointments and get to local markets.”
