Transport for London (TfL) has investigated providing direct bus journeys from Clapham into Central London by extending route 155 to Bank. Unfortunately, TfL’s analysis shows that this would be extremely costly and would not provide value for money, given that it would replicate the Northern line route.
However, there are a number of options for passengers wishing to travel from Clapham to Central London and I would encourage passengers to consider using existing bus services for these journeys. For those who want to take advantage of the Hopper bus fare and take a bus to Victoria, passengers can take the 88 and interchange onto the 2, or the 155 onto the 36 or 185. These options take just over 30 minutes. The 88 also serves quite a large area near Victoria, along Marsham Street. Passengers coming from Clapham Common can take bus route 137, which serves the Sloane Square side of Victoria.
For those wanting to go the City, passengers can take route 155 and interchange with routes 35 or 133.
TfL also continues to investigate increasing the train service frequency on the Morden branch to deal with crowding at Clapham North station, as well as using congestion management as required in the station.
