TFL stop excessive bus announcement "Please hold on while the bus is moving"

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


In January 2018, the plague returned to the streets of London in the form of new bus announcements. After every stop, a nonsensical announcement, “Please hold on while the bus is moving” plays.

For an average passenger with 15 stops, they will now sit (or stand) through 30 announcements - doubled noise pollution. This is ridiculous.

Here are a few alternatives that would have been better:

  • Only display text on the visual display without audio
  • Short awareness campaign on social media and/or printed posters
  • A soft, subtle tone to signal the bus is about to move
  • Add onto the safety sticker existing on each bus
  • Nothing. People can use common sense

This is a petition to the TFL fish tank to reconsider this announcement torture initiative. Stop this immediately and make buses great again! (ish) and not grate.

Thank you!
- Passenger
