As Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan pushes to cut and make changes to bus routes across our City, Westminster Conservatives are backing local campaigns to maintain bus routes as they are.
More than 10,000 people came together united in their opposition to the Mayor of London’s plans to cut buses across central London. We were supported by Nickie Aiken, Member of Parliament for the Cities of London & Westminster, Greg Hands, MP for Chelsea and Fulham, and Felicity Buchan, MP for Kensington, as well as London Assembly Member for West Central, Tony Devenish, in our opposition to the Mayor’s bus cuts.
The Mayor will now no longer push ahead with cuts to London’s oldest continuous bus route, bus route 24. Route 14, another pivotal route to Chelsea and Westminster, Royal Brompton, and Royal Marsden hospitals, has been saved, albeit having had its timetable previously cut. Route 4, which connects the City of London to Whittington Hospital is another essential route that no longer faces the Mayor’s axe because of your immense support.
Despite the Mayor’s u-turn, the campaign to save the threatened 11 and 211 continues.
The Mayor of London is pushing ahead with his plan to alter route 211. The route will now start at Battersea Power Station, cutting off local people living in Pimlico, Victoria and St James’s from the pivotal hospital bus route which previously linked them to Chelsea and Westminster, Royal Brompton, Royal Marsden, St Thomas’ and Charing Cross hospitals.
We really need your support to show the Mayor just how important it is for buses are to local people.
