Since taking up the transport brief at City Hall I've received a great deal of correspondence regarding the X26 bus route.
I understand that the X26 bus is going to become a twice-hourly service from November 22 and TfL will be carrying out research to "assess the value placed on a limited stop service linking major town centres".
Given that I have received various comments about the X26 service, I'm really trying to get to the bottom of how people feel about this bus service.
I would be extremely interested in hearing people's opinions on the following issues: where the X26 stops; whether the X26 is used as an express bus between local centres or whether it is used more as a means simply to get to Heathrow; whether people will take the bus rather than the car to Heathrow if the X26 is twice hourly; is there enough space for luggage onboard?; should TfL charge a premium fare for journeys to Heathrow; and are there other ways in which the service can be improved?
If anyone has any contributions then I would be delighted to receive their letters addressed to me at City Hall Queen's Walk, SE1 2AA as soon as possible. I look forward to working with your readers on this matter.
