Since the removal of the 84 bus between Potters Bar and High Barnet by Hertfordshire County Council, bus services around Hadley Highstone have been severely impacted, and do not operate at all on Sundays. Given TfL’s commitment to deliver bus services to areas of London with low public transport connectivity, what are they doing to deliver better connectivity in Hadley Highstone?

Since the withdrawal of the commercially operated bus route 84, Hadley Highstone is now served solely by route 399 that runs during Monday to Saturday between 1000 and 1500.

Transport for London (TfL) looked into options for providing an additional service, but the usage data on route 84 that used to run throughout the day, seven days a week showed that usage was extremely low at the Hadley Highstone stop and the two either side of it. This means that there is insufficient demand to justify an additional service north of Barnet town centre.

TfL regularly reviews the bus network and will continue to monitor demand in this area.
