A full all-day 603 bus service will be introduced if Brian Paddick, the Liberal Democrat mayoral candidate, gets elected on 1st May. This was pledged on Monday as Mr Paddick toured the Hornsey and Wood Green constituency with GLA candidate Monica Whyte, and Lynne Featherstone MP.
The 603 route, which runs from Muswell Hill to Swiss Cottage via Highgate, is currently only running at very limited capacity, with 4 buses a day.
Brian Paddick comments:
“The 603 provides a valuable service – it’s pretty much the only public transport running from Muswell Hill to Hampstead and beyond, but currently its capacity means that its usefulness for local residents is limited. If I’m elected Mayor, I promise to introduce a full all-day service that will much better serve the people of Hornsey and Wood Green.”
Lynne Featherstone MP adds:
“Brian has been listening to local people, and I am delighted to hear that he has promised to add many more buses to this much appreciated and cherished local bus service. The response to the local campaign on the 603 over many years – and the many email responses and online petition signatures I have received – show how vital this service is to local residents, and how well used it would be.”
