Proposed bus service changes in the Tottenham Court Road area


December 5, 2016

Earlier this year, (15 June – 24 July 2016) TfL consulted on changes to bus services in the Tottenham Court Road area. The proposals were in response to Camden Council’s West End Project and the reintroduction of two-way traffic on Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street.


TfL received 816 responses from members of the public and nine responses from stakeholders.


Overall, the results for the proposals were positive with the majority of respondents indicating that the proposals would be better for them or that there would be no change. For routes 14, 24, 29, 73, 390, N5, N20, N29, N73 and the N279 (the proposed rerouting of southbound routes from Gower St to Tottenham Court Road) the majority of respondents (27 per cent) indicated that this “will be better for me.” For the other routes, most respondents indicated that there would be no change. For more information on the results, please see the consultation reports available online.


Having reviewed the responses to this consultation, TfL has decided to proceed with the changes to bus services, as originally described in our consultation material. They intend to complete this changeover by December 2018, in time for the completion of the new road layout in the Tottenham Court Road area.
