Increase in 'busses proposed for Edgware Garage

Request ID: FOI-3884-2324
Date published: 12 February 2024

You asked

FoI 3200-2324 kindly informed me that "Approximately 90 vehicles are stabled overnight at Edgware garage." A proposal, exhibited during a local consultation in Edgware, is to build a new garage capable of accommodating (probably) three times this number of vehicles. In this case, where will the extra 'busses come from? For example but without imposing any leading question, they could be displaced by the closure of another garage (and, if so, please state which site) or these could be new additions to the fleet in order to expand the service.
