Is it me but has the P4 become very unreliable of late? Luckily I don't use it much but when I do, it doesn't seem unusual for there to be a 25-30 minute gap. More than once I have been on a bus where an announcement is made that the bus will terminate early, obviously to try to bring some order back to the schedule. Last Friday at about 22.45, coming from West Dulwich Station, I walked all the way from Dulwich College to Fairlawn School without one passing me. I know it was never a great service but I do feel it has deteriorated in the last few months.

I must admit I haven't got it in a while, but found the late night service back from Brixton very reliable, whereas going the other way in the morning was TERRIBLE.

The P4 recently had a revised timetable in an attempt to bring the service back to normal.

However, the service has been hampered thanks to 20mph zones in Lewisham and Southwark, along with congestion along Dulwich Common and London Road.

The P13 runs from Dulwich College up to London Road. I use the text facility to see when the next bus is scheduled.

The P4 is notoriously unreliable. When it's good, it's very, very good. When it's bad, it's terrible. The four-way traffic control in Dulwich Village hasn't been helping recently.
