Liberal Democrats call for full 603 bus service

Local Liberal Democrats have stepped up their campaign calling for a full day service on the popular 603 bus route. Consultation will decide the future of the route, which runs from Swiss Cottage to Muswell Hill.

Lynne Featherstone MP presented Peter Hendy, Commissioner for Transport for London (TfL), with a petition with 312 signatures in the autumn, in a bid to show how well loved and needed the 603 route is by local residents. With the upcoming consultation, local residents will again be given a chance to show how widespread support is for a full service.

As TfL has yet to define the time frame and format of the consultation, Lynne Featherstone MP has again written to Peter Hendy, demanding clarification. All details will be published on her website when a response has been received.

Lynne Featherstone, MP for Hornsey and Wood Green comments:

“The 603 is such an amazingly popular and useful route, but the frequency of service means that it’s only of limited use to residents in the area today.

“The upcoming consultation offers a chance for residents to let TfL know just how much we love and need this route to serve our local community. So keep an eye on my website for further details on how to respond to the consultation.”

Cllr Martin Newton, Lib Dem Transport Spokesperson adds:

“Local residents and Lib Dems were at the heart of the campaign to set up the 603 service and we have been campaigning for a full service on this route ever since.

“This is a much used and needed service that will benefit the local community further if a full service is provided.”
