More buses will run on one of the borough’s busiest routes during rush hour.

Transport for London (TfL) confirmed on Monday, 1 February that they will be introducing extra services on the W3 route between Northumberland Park and Finsbury Park after reports of overcrowding.

London Assembly member for Enfield and Haringey Joanne McCartney said: “I welcome the additional services during the morning peak to alleviate the overcrowding that this hugely popular route experiences towards Finsbury Park.

“I am pleased that the Mayor of London and TfL have taken concerns seriously and have taken action to improve the services for paying customers.

“I will continue to monitor the service provided by the W3 bus route to ensure that passengers in Haringey are receiving a good service without the overcrowding that they have been experiencing.”

Two extra buses will run between 7am and 8am to reduce overcrowding on the W3. Ms McCartney said she had received numerous complaints from passengers who have experienced unreliability, overcrowding and long waits to board a W3.
