Plans are afoot to permanently withdraw the N145 bus route due to low passenger numbers.

Transport for London (TfL) is consulting on proposals to withdraw this service, which after being introduced in 2016 ran between Dagenham and Leytonstone every half an hour on Friday and Saturday nights. 

This service has been suspended since the spring of 2020 due to Covid-19, and its pre-pandemic passenger numbers were lower than TfL originally predicted.

En-route to Leytonstone, the N145 stops at Becontree, Ilford, Redbridge and Wanstead Tube stations.

There are no plans to make any changes to the 145 service which runs during the day.

The consultation is open until March 24. Have your say by visiting this link.
