Liberal Democrat campaign success as 102 bus extended

The announcement by Transport for London (TfL) that service on the 102 bus route will expand to run a 24 hours service has been welcomed by Haringey Liberal Democrats.

The route is an important link for the town centres of Golders Green, East Finchley, Bounds Green, Palmers Green, Muswell Hill and Edmonton Green and will now provide for the large number of people returning home after attending and working in the night clubs and restaurants. Lib Dem councillor Gail Engert, who galvanised public support in 2005 by starting a campaign for the extension, is pleased that her efforts will help the local community and ensure residents are able to return home safely.

The half-hourly night service will commence from midnight Saturday 1st September.

Cllr Gail Engert (Muswell Hill) comments:

“I’m absolutely delighted that TfL have listened to local concerns and decided to provide a night service for the 102 bus. Lib Dems have been tirelessly working on behalf of residents since 2005 and the right decision has been made. This will be of enormous help to both those attending and working in the vibrant night time economy of Muswell Hill and ensure that people are able to return home safely.”
