Why does TfL propose to reduce the frequency of the N155 bus service on Fridays and Saturdays to 20 minutes, starting on 3 September 2022, despite the post-pandemic recovery of demand for night venues in Clapham?

Transport for London has brought the weekend frequency of route N155 in line with the weeknight frequency. Demand has halved on weekend nights following the reintroduction of Night Tube services on the Northern line from 2 July 2022, which closely follows the majority of the N155 route between Charing Cross and Morden.

With the reintroduction of Night Tube, even with a frequency reduction to route N155, there is a substantial overall net improvement in weekend access and capacity, for all customers including key workers and those travelling to and from night venues in Clapham.
