Changes to bus routes

Sarah Olney, MP for Richmond Park, has announced some changes to bus routes, following the closure of Hammersmith Bridge.

We have received an update from TfL regarding enhanced bus services to improve the transport connections in Barnes. They are as follows:
From Saturday 29/08/2020 they will run extra services on Route 533 (Hammersmith Bus Station - Lonsdale Road)
Mon - Fri 0730 and 1900 - three buses every hour and then two buses an hour in the evenings
Sat 0900 and 1830 four buses per hour
Sun 0900 and 1830 four buses per hour

In addition, they are increasing the number of buses running on Route 378 to help customers to connect with London Underground District line services at Putney Bridge helping to improve the link between there and Mortlake.

From Saturday 05/09/2020 they will run extra services on Route 378 (Mortlake Bus Station – Putney Bridge Station)
Mon – Sat daytime - 8 buses per hour (currently 5 buses per hour)
In the evening and on the weekends - 6 buses per hour,
Except on Sundays early AM from - 4 buses per hour

To enhance Route 378 they need to reduce the current service levels on Route 209 which has seen a fall in customer numbers since the bridge closed to pedestrians.

From Saturday 05/09/2020 Route 209 will be reduced (Mortlake Bus Station to Lonsdale Road)
Mon – Sat daytime - 4 buses per hour,
In the evening and on the weekends - 3 buses per hour
Sunday early AM 2 buses per hour
