|Bus Route 235 Boosted After Increase in Demand|
Electric vehicles to be introduced on the service later this year
Transport for London (TfL) has announced that, due to increased demand, it has increased the regularity of the 235 bus route.
The service, which runs between Sunbury Village and Brentford North Quarter, requires the increased capacity due to a rise in demand.
The change will mean that, in the weekday morning peak there will now be up to 10 buses per hour towards Brentford.
In addition TfL has confirmed that new electric buses will be introduced on the route later this year.
At the same time a reduction in the regularity of the service on route 533 has been announced. This runs from Hammersmith bus station to Castelnau with an express service between Hammersmith Bridge Road and Mortlake Cemetery. It is now running every 15 minutes at all times instead of every 10 at peak times and every 12 minutes off peak.
TfL says this is due to a reduction in demand following the reopening of Hammersmith Bridge to pedestrians and cyclists and that it is keeping these changes under close review and due to the flexible nature of the bus network, are able to make adaptations at relatively short notice to reflect changing demand where required.
