A recently published article by "Bus Driver U" describes what the author sees as serious safety failings in the way that bus services are regulated by TfL and run by bus operators.  The article includes a link to another describing a campaign for safer bus operations in London launched by an American businessman who was the victim of near-fatal collision on Oxford Street. The anonymous driver's article  - Bus Driver Fatigue—A TfL-Contracted Killer on London’s Roads? - is.......

As of Tuesday 29th March there will be a new regular bus service connecting Cockfosters Station with Luton, via Potters Bar, Hatfield, Wheathampstead and Dunstable. The new connections come about as the result of changes to an existing bus route, the 610, run by UNO, a company set up primarily to serve the University of Hertfordshire, but whose services are available to everyone. As previously, a few peak hour buses will operate to and from Enfield Town, but they will now be routed via.......

I have previously expressed concern about the effects of changes along the A105 on bus travel. This didn't seem to me to be being properly considered in what is still predominantly a debate between cyclists and those concerned about car parking.

Well here's the response. The sections in.......

The owners of Palmers Green bus garage, Arriva London ("a DB Company" - ie owned by the German state railways), have applied for planning permission to demolish two buildings next to the garage (to its east) and use the land as an open-air bus park.  However, there are no plans to expand the number of buses which are housed at the garage - the maximum number will remain at 69.  This number of buses is in fact rather too many for the size of the building, meaning that manoeuvring of buses.......

A list of proposed bus service changes, several of which would affect Palmers Green, was presented to Transport for London a year ago, but to date there has been no indication that any of the proposals will be implemented.  A public meeting on 22nd January may shed some light on the situation.
