Transport for London have reduced bus service levels on the B13 route from New Eltham to Bexleyheath.
The service has dropped from four buses an hour to three, increasing service intervals from 15 minutes to 20.
In a report before Bexley Council last week, TfL stated:
“Buses will run every 20 minutes instead of every 15 minutes during the daytime Monday to Saturday.
“There is no change to the frequency in the evenings or on Sundays. TfL monitoring shows the revised frequencies will be enough to meet current and expected demand.”
They added that demand was eight per cent lower than in 2017.
The route runs via Blackfen and passes the University of Greenwich’s campus at Avery Hill. A new school is set to be built on part of the site in 2025.
In addition, the B13 route has been curtailed in Bexleyheath near the library and will no longer run in a loop around the town centre.
