Popular bus route to see frequency increase

Bus route 314 will see a frequency increase from the end of August 2019 during the week from Monday to Saturdays.

The popular route (so popular it’s one of the few in London to see an increase and not a cut) runs from Eltham station via the High Street to New Eltham then onto Bromley town centre and New Addington.

The bus stops near Eltham leisure centre on the High Street

According to TfL:

“We will be increasing the frequency of route 314 on The frequency of route 314 will be increased to every 12 minutes in the AM Peak, daytime and PM Peak on Monday to Fridays and during the daytime on Saturdays and to every 20 minutes during the evenings.

There will be no change to the frequency of route 314 on Sundays which will continue to operate at a frequency of every 30 minutes all day long.”

Narrow roads on part of the route appear to scupper double decking thus a frequency increase is the solution to some very busy journeys.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    It’s not so much the narrow roads as the low bridge at Elmstead Woods that prevent double decking the route.

    This is great news for users of the 314 bus route Eltham to New Addington via Coldharbour Estate (William Barefoot Drive) and Bromley. This busy bus route was in need of a frequency increase for quiet some time.
