Superloop’s joined up circuit just the ticket for South London, according to Mayor.

Sadiq Khan has hailed the completion of the main circle of his Superloop network of express bus services – the final piece of the circuit taking in key South London hubs.

The loop’s final three routes were have been launched in the past few weeks, meaning that the network now forms a 138km circle through London’s suburbs.

The latest routes to join the network are the SL2, linking Walthamstow and North Woolwich, the SL3, linking Thamesmead and Bromley North, and the SL5, linking Bromley North with Croydon town centre.

Mr Khan said: “The Superloop is a game-changing new network of express buses that have added more than six million additional bus kilometres to the capital’s bus network, linking stations, town centres, hospitals and transport hubs.

“I’m so excited about the benefits these new services will bring by providing Londoners with stronger alternatives to private car use, and helping us to build a better, greener London for everyone.

“When I made the tough decision to expand the Ulez London-wide, one of my key commitments to Londoners was to improve transport links in outer London.”

When the Superloop was first announced by the Labour mayor 12 months ago, backed by £6m of City Hall funding, it was attacked by his Tory critics as “nothing more than a repackaging of existing routes and vague promises”.

The network comprises four rebranded routes and six new ones. All services run every 12 minutes Monday to Saturday day times and every 15 minutes during all other day service times.
