TfL announce improved services on four Croydon bus routes

Four bus routes serving Croydon and south London are to get improved frequencies on their routes from the end of this month.

The 127, which runs between Purley and New Addington, is to run every 10min on weekdays

Transport for London confirmed yesterday that buses 127, 130, 314 and 432 will each get at least one extra service per hour with effect from August 31.

While this does little to make amends to the curtailment of 11 bus routes through the town centre, it will be a welcome enhancement to services for bus passengers from New Addington, Purley and Thornton Heath.

The detailed changes are:

127: Purley station to Tooting Broadway station

Frequency increased from 5 buses per hour to 6bph Monday to Saturday daytimes and from 3bph to 4bph Sunday (daytime and evening).

The 130 bus route

130: King Henry’s Drive, New Addington to Thornton Heath Clock Tower

Frequency increased from 3bph to 4bph Monday to Friday evenings and from 2bph to 3bph Sunday daytime. An additional school day PM journey will also be introduced from Coloma Convent Girls School towards Thornton Heath

314: New Addington to Eltham station

Frequency increased from 4 bph to 5bph on Monday to Saturday daytime and from 2bph to 3bph on Monday to Saturday evenings

432: Anerley station to Brixton station

Frequency increase from 5bph to 6bph Monday to Saturday daytimes.
