Transport for London is making changes to a number of bus routes in order to cut the air pollution in Oxford Street. Many bus routes go through the centre of London and are creating hazardous conditions for shoppers and shop staff.
With the support of retailers and others in the West End, buses are being re-routed away from Oxford Circus. Our own No3 bus running from crystal palace is one of these.
TfL proposes to reroute the No 3 service to Russell Square serving Charing Cross Road and Great Russell Street. Buses would no longer run between Regent Street and Trafalgar Square.
The proposals would create new passenger links between Millbank, the British Museum and the Russell Square area on route 3.
They would also create new links between Millbank and Tottenham Court Road station for easy access to Tube and Elizabeth line services.
There would be no change to frequencies. At the moment buses run between Crystal Palace bus station and Regent Street (Conduit Street) serving West Dulwich, Herne Hill, Brixton, Kennington and Westminster. Buses run every eight minutes during the day Monday to Saturday, and every ten minutes during the day on Sundays.
TfL is consulting on this and other bus route changes and you can contribute at https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/bus-routes-3-137-and-n3/
