TfL have announced two additional W3 bus services in the morning peak towards Finsbury Park. From Monday 1 February, on bus route W3, which runs between Northumberland Park and Finsbury Park station, two additional buses will run towards Finsbury Park between 07:00 and 08:00 on weekdays. This is in order to meet increasing customer demand.
I have been raising resident’s concerns and frustrations with being unable to board the W3 in the morning rush hour with TfL and the Mayor of London directly. Some of my questions to the Mayor can be seen below:
- W3 bus (January 2016)
- W3 bus route overcrowding (February 2015)
- W3 Bus (February 2012)
- W3 bus (2) (February 2012)
I welcome the additional services to the W3 route during the morning peak to alleviate the overcrowding that this hugely popular route experiences towards Finsbury Park. I am pleased that the Mayor of London and TfL have taken seriously the concerns that I have been consistently raising and have taken action to improve the services for paying customers.
The two extra buses between 7am and 8am should help to reduce overcrowding on the W3 during the morning peak for passengers who have experienced unreliability, overcrowding and long waits to board a W3 for too long.
I will continue to monitor the service provided by the W3 bus route to ensure that passengers in Haringey are receiving a good service without the overcrowding that they have been experiencing.
