HL Deb 14 November 1988 vol 501 c912WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have approved London Regional Transport's new policy of breaking long distance red bus routes into two parts.

Lord Brabazon of Tara

The routing of bus services is a matter for London Regional Transport and its subsidiary, London Buses Ltd. I understand that splitting longer routes is done to improve reliability; it is by no means a new policy.
