London bus cuts to hit working-class hardest, says watchdog
TfL cuts to include routes used by workers living on outskirts to reach low-paid, central jobs
Leaked Transport for London plans to cut bus routes connecting the outskirts of the city with the centre will disproportionately affect working-class people, a transport watchdog has said.
More than 30 TfL bus services will be reduced, including longer routes from the south-east to west London, some of which are more than an hour long end to end, including the 53, 171 and 172.
wanted to crack a joke but honestly TFL cutting these long central > south London bus routes is an attack on the working classes + I’m not accepting any different. how many ppl who can afford the (more expensive) overground or train instead choose to sit on a bus for 70 minutes https://t.co/eVfJhvBATs
