After last weeks news of planned cuts to the 53 (amongst many other routes) and results of Crossrail-related bus changes in December (with some planned improvements axed) comes another more modest cut.
The 492 between Sidcup and Bluewater is being reduced from an already poor 30 minute interval to 31-34 minutes during peak times.
The 492 runs through many town centres, departing from Sidcup then heading to Bexley, Bexleyheath, Crayford, Dartford before terminating at Bluewater shopping centre.
30 minutes is hardly a turn up and go service as it is, so an extra 4 minute wait probably won’t change much but it’s another small chip away at service levels. Expect to see much more as the annual cut of £700 million from Government to TfL takes hold alongside fare freezes and stagnating passenger numbers.
