TfL has launched a consultation about reducing various bus services. The bit that affects Highgate is the proposal to withdraw the 271 night service on all nights. The Forum would like to hear your views and would encourage anyone with strong views to respond directly. 

The 271 night service currently runs every day from midnight to 5.30am. TfL says that usage on the route has fallen following the opening of Night Tube at weekends, and has also fallen on weekdays. This is part of a wider TfL consultation about cuts in bus services and comes as no surprise given the financial constraints the organisation is under. The closing date for comments is Friday 9 November.
