603 Bus Campaign

The community of parents taking their children to Hampstead and Highgate schools has been united for more than 20 years in saying that the public transport options for children going from Swiss Cottage/Hampstead/Belsize Park towards Highgate schools, and from Muswell Hill towards Highgate and Hampstead schools are inadequate.

 

The 603 bus, when launched in 2004, helped to partly solve this problem but its service is insufficient. 

Green School Runs has approached TFL in early 2022 to ask for an increase in frequency and amendment to the timetable of the 603 bus route.

Currently, only two services are run in the morning and in the afternoon, starting from Muswell Hill. We would like:

  • Regular services every 8-11 minutes starting from Muswell Hill AND from Swiss Cottage between 6:40 and 8:15 in the morning.

  • Regular services every 8-11 minutes starting from Muswell Hill AND from Swiss Cottage between 15:15 and 17:15 in the afternoon.

UPDATE - APRIL 2022

GSR met with TFL transport planners to discuss the service offered by the 603 bus in March 2022. Despite having an honest and productive discussion, our request for extending the service of the 603 bus - or at the very least amend its current timetable - was turned down on the basis of past research done by TFL. We remain committed to pursuing this issue and building a stronger case for the need to extend the service of the 603 bus.
