Liberal Democrats gather views on ‘Worst bus route in London’

by Haringey Lib Dems on April 20, 2012

London Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon led Haringey Liberal Democrats surveying W3 bus users on Thursday 19thApril.

The route is officially the most complained about in London, with TfL receiving over fifty complaints from passengers in a four week period last autumn. Liberal Democrats held their own survey session at Finsbury Park bus station to find out why the bus route attracts so much criticism.

Caroline Pidgeon was joined by Haringey London Assembly candidate Dawn Barnes, Liberal Democrat leader on Haringey Council, Richard Wilson, and a number of other Lib Dem members. The survey asked whether there were enough buses at rush hour, whether there were enough buses at the weekends and if there were problems with the countdown displays.

Dawn Barnes, Liberal Democrat candidate for Enfield and Haringey in the London Assembly elections, commented.

“I know from first hand experience some of the problems commuters face with the W3 on a daily basis. The bus goes right through the heart of Haringey so it’s really important that the views of passengers are listened to. TfL must sort the service out.”

Results of the survey will be published in May.

The W3 route starts at Finsbury Park and loops through Haringey to Northumberland Park.

  1. I dont believe the W3 bus route is no worse than any other to be honest. although i dont rely on this bus on a daily basis, when i have needed it there has been no problems i have experienced that does not come with any other route. maybe the locals are just trying to vent their frustrations about other problems in the area.
