    Extend the 172 to Lower Sydenham. This would create a lot of links for the area via Cranston Road and Perry Vale

    Route 371 which normally runs between Kingston & Richmond Manor Road Sainsbury's should be withdrawn to Dee Road again due to the level crossing at Manor Road causing delays of some 20 minutes some days.

    799? Good idea but the number wouldn't go through maybe 400 or something

    Firstly, you don't have a bus connection...but you have two tube lines, London Overground and London Midland services taking you into London, compared with places in South London which are lucky to have one train line. Think of the connections you already have :tongueout:

    Also, I don't think its overly practical, as it comes down to Kensington, and really would be better off, going over Vauxhall Bridge. Going down the north side of the thames, to cross London Bridge and come all the way back along the south side isn't really practical either.

    Lastly, that follows quite a lot of existing routes anyway, so could you not make use of the 'Hopper Fare' and just ride an extra bus?

    In Barking alot of people are trying to get to Barkingside.

    Currently they have 2 routes to do that :
    Take the EL1 and then Change to either the 167, 150, 128
    Or take the 169 the whole way (Takes a rediculous time)

    Now the EL Network is called The East London Transit section of GAL they currently have the EL2 EL1 (EL3 to be active in Febuary)
    I think they should make a new route EL4 Barking Station - Claybury Broadway (Via Barkingside, Gants Hill, Ilford.)

    It also helps with adding capacity to the section of Ilford Lane which is a area with rediculous demand for busses (Because no one can drive to save they're life down here.)

    If Harrow was ever to have a bus to central, then surely extending the 18 to Harrow from Sudbury (like the N18) is the most viable option.

    That's actually a really good idea, but couldn't they reroute 128 or extend 275?

    The 275 would be a rediculous extention
    The 128 Reroute would just make the route rediculously long and stupid.

    I suggest changing Leeds Route 4 up a bit as currently 6 buses per hour go to Pudsey Highfield Green. The route used to go to Galloway Lane and if they change it so 3 buses per hour go to Highfield Green and the other 3 go to Galloway Lane. Galloway Lane provides great connectivity with routes 72 to Bradford/Leeds, 508 to Halifax/Leeds and X6 to Bradford/Leeds FAST .
