Leter from Arriva to Jo Johnson MP

Contrary to assurances (click image to enlarge) given by Arriva to our MP, Jo Johnson, it seems that Arriva is still planning to cancel the 402 service between Dunton Green and Bromley .

Peter Nicholls from London Buses tells us that “Arriva Kent and Surrey have advised us of their proposal to withdraw route 402 between Dunton Green and Bromley from 23 July 2017.

Please respond to the consultation by 19 May!
