The people of East London are angry about the cut of the 167 bus route. The bus went from Ilford to Debden, ensuring that children got to school savely and elderly people have a chance to do their groceries. TFL had asked people in the surrounding areas about their opinions on the planned cancellation of this bus route and not a single person was in favour of the proposal. However, the changes will nevertheless take place and have a great influence on these people’s lives.
TFL’s behaviour is not comprehensible and unrespectful of the people’s opinions. Public Transport in form of buses plays an important role in East London especially, as many families live here and commute to Central London. Moreover, tube stations are far apart and the often have no choice but to rely on public transport.
