Below I have attempted to pick out bus routes which will most affect SE15, SE22 and SE23, please read and share.

This is something I feel cross party and borough councillors from both Southwark and Lewisham need to work together on.

Don't forget TfL's motto "Every journey matters", it sure don't feel like that from these proposals that not only include losing the No. 12 bus service but also the 78.

Routes 1 (Tottenham Court Road-Canada Water) and 168 (Hampstead Heath-Old Kent Road) would be axed, although a new route would run from Hampstead Heath to Canada Water using most of the 1 and 168 routeing would be introduced. The new route is 'provisionally numbered' 1 but its actual number will be defined after the consultation

Route 188 (Russell Square-North Greenwich) would be changed to start from Tottenham Court Road instead of Russell Square

I would urge everyone who this affects to complete the consultation.
there is also a petition regarding the axing of the number 12
on Change.org
under the heading Save Bus route 12 (I dont know how to copy the link and make it work).
Our London bridge and Victoria southern trains have been cut and now our bus services are being eroded too.
North of the river I would understand and indeed condone cutting bus services to save money because alternative train stations and bus routes are never too far away
indeed where I lived previously there were 3 stations offering different lines at a walkable distance to eachother,
not to mention bus routes offering direct routes to the west end (3 in total)
North London (2 routes) and buses going to South-west London (2 routes).
Bear in mind that many of us who live in zone 3 work in zone 1 and moved here because we couldn't afford to live any nearer to where we work.
We are truly the poor relations when it comes to public transport.
Not everyone is able to ride a bike or take other forms of transport.
Time was that the 12 went to Shepherds bush from Forest Hill/Penge
The 176 went to Oxford Circus....the routes have been chipped away at and we have speak out and stop this.

I wonder if the moderator could move this to 'local' area topic heading
Because it will definitely adversely impact the residents of SE23
