Nearly 80 London bus routes face cuts amid funding deal row

Nearly 80 bus routes in central and inner London face being axed or cut back, it was announced on Wednesday, as part of a major shake up aimed at making “significant savings”.Transport for London’s decision to launch a six week consultation on 78 of its 620 routes in the centre of the city - including some of the capital’s best known services - sparked a fierce row between City Hall and Boris Johnson’s government over who was to blame for the cuts.Deputy Mayor for Transport Seb Dance said: “No one wants to see reductions to our bus network, but TFL is having to consider these changes because of the savings demanded by the Government as part of the emergency funding deals during the pandemic.”
