Campaign to Bring Back Night Bus

April 30, 2012 2:06 PM

A group of local young people have re-launched the campaign for a night bus between Croydon and Sutton. Daniel Dunican is spearheading the campaign that is calling on all Mayoral candidates to make the 154 a 24 hour bus service.

Three years ago hundreds of young people protested against the decision to axe the old N213 night bus and more than 5000 people joined the subsequent Facebook campaign.

Daniel Dunican said, 'It is clear that TfL will not bring back the N213 but by simply extending the 154 to operate 24 hours a day, the next London Mayor can provide a night bus linking Morden, Sutton, Carshalton, Wallington and Croydon. If Ken and Boris want our votes, they need to listen to the needs of young people."

Brian Paddick, Liberal Democrat candidate for Mayor, has already come out to pledge his support for the campaign saying that the removal of the night bus has had implications for individual safety. Jenny Jones, the Green Party candidate has also come out in support of the campaign.

Local MP, Tom Brake, said, 'It is great to see young people getting involved in politics and I do hope whoever is the next Mayor brings back the night bus and puts a greater emphasis upon transport and transport safety in outer London.'
