You asked

I would like the data for total bus boarders per week between June and September 2019 and between June and the last available recorded week 2022 for all night bus routes and 24 hour bus routes proposed to be withdrawn in the Central London Bus Review: • 12 • 14 • 24 • N11 • N16 • N31 • N72 • N74 • N242

We answered

Our Ref:         FOI-1191-2223

Thank you for your request received on 12 August 2022 asking for information about weekly bus boarders.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.

Please find the requested information attached. Please note that the 2022 dataset is for the date range from 1 June to 7 August 2022, which is the last date for which data is available. The 2019 data is for the full date range from 1 June to 30 September 2019.

It should be noted, in particular for the data relating to the night routes, the recovery rates exceeding 100% on some routes have primarily been due to the suspension of Night Tube services. This has required customers to find alternative routes for their travel, many of which would have been completed on these routes. Other factors including ongoing disruptions caused by industrial action and extreme weather will also have an impact on the attached figures.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
