New Routemaster bus conductors are to be abolished in a £10 million cut by Transport for London, ITV London can reveal.
There are currentlty six routes operating with conductors on New Routemaster buses. Another 19 routes that use New Routemasters already do so without conductors
- Routes 9, 10, 11, 24, 38 and 390 currently have conductors on New Routemaster buses
TfL has found that having conductors on board made only a "modest difference to customer satisfaction" - increasing 86.7% to 88.4%.
Tfl say not having conductors would "save around £10m a year", adding that thus will be reinvested in modernising the transport network.
