Increase the capacity on the 251 bus route during the morning and afternoon rush hour.

We the undersigned are calling for an increase to the bus capacity along the 251 bus route from Edgware to Arnos Grove from 0630 to 0900 and from Arnos Grove to Edgware from 1700 to 1800.
During these peak times the buses are already full to capacity before Burnt Oak in the morning and Totteridge in the afternoon. Indeed a Freedom of Information request demonstrates that the buses are full from Burnt Oak to Totteridge from 0630 to 0900 which is a distance of about 5km. Along this part of the route it is almost impossible to get on the bus which leaves many people stranded.
The commuters at this time of the day using this bus route are often on low incomes and on shift work; punctuality is vital for their jobs however they are not been given a fair opportunity to travel.
We would like to see either of the following to happen;
· Increased frequency of buses along the route to guarantee there is space for passengers to board in Burnt Oak, Mill Hill and Totteridge.
· Replace the current bus model with a double-decker to increase the capacity of each vehicle travelling along the route. This will guarantee space for passengers to board in Burnt Oak, Mill Hill and Totteridge.
