Transport for London (TfL) have announced no changes to certain bus services across Hertfordshire.

At the beginning of 2016 Hertfordshire County Council planned cuts to the subsidy they have provided for the running of services.

Now the 107, 142, 258 and 292 bus services will have no changes made and the move follows pressure from the MP of Hertsmere Oliver Dowden.

He said: “I know how concerned constituents were about possible cuts and have been vigorously pressing the case that services should be protected.

“Given the importance of these bus services to many of my constituents I will continue to monitor developments closely.”

Mr Dowden wrote to TfL in March following the council’s decision not to renew their subsidy and in his letter he called for the services to be protected.

Paul Edwards, team manager for TfL buses, said in his response: “We regret that Hertfordshire County Council has had to take this decision to cease funding cross boundary bus services.

“There are however no current plans to make alterations to any of our bus services that run to and from Hertfordshire.

“If in the future we propose to make any changes, we will undertake full stakeholder and public consultations as we do for any bus service.”
