Save Route 276 from becoming almost unusable

This petition had 317 supporters

I live in Stoke Newington, northeast London. I live near route 276, a busy bus route linking Stoke Newington, Homerton Hospital and Newham Hospital. It currently is on the list of the top 20 most overcrowded bus routes in London, and operates at 125% of its capacity. Yet TfL want to reduce the weekday frequency of this vital service to every 12 minutes (It currently is every 10 minutes) . The frequency of route 488, another important single decker route which loosely follows the 276 and also serves Homerton Hospital, has already been reduced from every 12 to every 15 minutes. The reduction of the 276 is currently scheduled to happen on 14th October 2017. If this change goes ahead, this already overcrowded service, which links two hospitals, will become almost unusable, and will therefore put people in regular need of an appointment at a greater risk. It will also put the many schoolchildren who use the service daily at a greater risk of being late.Overall, this change is a ridiculous idea, and I think TfL should instead cut some of the less busy double decker routes, rather than this important route. Save the 276!
