Bus link’s next stop

By James Martin, March 26, 2009

Moves towards a direct bus link between Golders Green and Stamford Hill are gathering momentum with a survey of residents by London TravelWatch, the transport users’ consumer group.

LTW has distributed several thousand leaflets asking residents about their travel needs between the two areas.

Flyers have also gone out to synagogues and the research will continue for another month before the findings are presented to Transport for London.

Jo Debank of London TravelWatch said TfL would have to decide “whether there needs to be an extension of the existing 210 service or a reworking of the route, which will take longer to organise.”

In Stamford Hill, Yesodey Hatorah Schools’ principal Rabbi Avraham Pinter said: “It’s very encouraging that TfL are responding to our needs. I would expect our community would be fully in favour of a bus service between the areas.

“My personal wish is that it should be an express service that goes as directly as possible.”
