11th October 2018, London – Early-rising tourists were given a sightseeing surprise this morning when The Original Tour unveiled London’s first ever 100% electric hop-on hop-off open-top bus outside Westminster Abbey, offering city-trippers a carbon-free carbon copy of the firm’s famous tours in a move welcomed by London’s Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy.
TfL has opened up a consultation to review and amend the Central London bus routes.
From the TfL consultation:
We are proposing to make changes to 33 bus routes, including alterations to night services and the introduction of a new route. These routes run across London, but the majority of changes take place in inner and central London.
First of all, I do apologise for the lack of articles of late which has been due to personal circumstances that have prevented me from writing new articles. I should however be able to maintain my usual output from now on.
So let us have a look at some of the transport news from press releases of the transport authorities and companies.
We have today confirmed that, having considered all of the issues raised in last year’s consultation on the proposed transformation of Oxford Street, we will proceed with those changes to bus services on Oxford Street which have merit.
The changes are:
Route 10 will be withdrawn, but we will amend Route 23 to run between Westbourne Park and Hammersmith The amended route 23 will continue to run between Westbourne Park and Marble Arch, but will then follow the existing route 10 from Marble Arch to Hammersmith. We plan to implement these changes in November 2018.
We own, operate and develop 20,000 miles of track across Britain and that’s just the start. With such far-reaching infrastructure, we have a responsibility to limit our impact on the environment as best we can.
We’ve made significant progress in sustainability over the past year, diverting 94% of our waste from landfill.
