In recent days survey cards (small cards with blue writing and the Transport for London Sign on it) have arrived in the letterboxes of the area around WC1X, commissioned by Transport for London (TFL) which carry responsibility for the bus network.
The survey asks you to state your preferences on what looks like a possible difficult choice that TFL and its operators supposedly have to make.
It appears to be about the question, of whether they should modernize the fleet and bus stops put against savings in the frequency of buses running.
The area of WC1X could do with more modernised stops, esp. along Kings Cross Road and Acton Street, but would you be prepared to have longer waiting and journey times and fewer buses in return?
Should there even be a choice? Investments in superb, state-of-the-art, comfortable, safe, informative and inclusive bus stops are long-term investments. On some journeys, longer journey times or waiting times could make the use of a bus unattractive for some people.
You get a five Pound Amazon or M&S Voucher for completing the survey (10 minutes).
