Email Boris - tell him to extend the 63 bus!

Renata, Victoria and I have been campaigning alongside London Assembly Member Val Shawcross for the extension of the 63 bus from its current finishing point on Forest Hill Road so that it goes just three more stops to Honor Oak Park station.

We think that any extension needs to be combined with the protection of the frequency of the 63 and new crossing points around local primary schools. We also think that any improvements to the 63 route must not be at the expense of the already infrequent P12 bus.

Please add your voice to the campaign by emailing the Mayor Boris Johnson

Dear Boris,

I am writing to you let you know the strength of feeling in my area about the need to extend the 63 bus to Honor Oak Park Station. It would make life so much easier for thousands of people in this part of South London if the 63 just went a few more stops and linked up with the overland train system and the new East London Line extension at Honor Oak Park.

This would expand the options for people getting to work in the morning and take some of the pressure off the 63 buses travelling to and from central London during rush hours.

Our Assembly Member, Val Shawcross, has already made numerous requests for the extension of the 63 bus route, but TfL Planners do not seem to realise how important this is or see the good sense in making the East London Line accessible to as many people as possible. Please listen to people living in the Peckham Rye, Honor Oak, Forest Hill and East Dulwich area, and EXTEND THE 63!

Yours sincerely...

With the East London Line extension reaching Honor Oak Park in just a few weeks, now is a crucial time to get our voices heard.
