Don't Scrap the RV1!

Transport for London have announced plans to totally scrap the much-loved RV1 bus service. The zero-emissions bus route connects Covent Garden, the London Eye, South Bank, Tate Modern, the Globe, Borough Market, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.

The number of buses was halved earlier in the year amid much protest, and Southwark Liberal Democrats handed a petition with over 1000 signatures to the Mayor to allow local residents and passengers a chance to have their say.

This latest proposal to get rid of the service entirely was unexpected, and TfL are currently consulting on whether to go ahead with these plans.

We want to save the RV1! If you agree, please add your name to the petition below:

You can also write directly to TfL here.



We oppose all plans to cut or scrap the RV1 bus route. This eco-friendly bus serves residents, tourists and workers in a busy and growing part of central London and should be kept.

GOAL: 254 signatures
