TfL says changing bus lanes for strikes would cause more disruption

During the recent RMT strike the largest number of buses ever were deployed on London's streets, carrying around an extra million passengers and playing a crucial role in keeping London moving. To allow additional traffic to use our bus lanes, including private hire vehicles, would only cause disruption to these services which would make no sense at all.

– Leon Daniels, Managing Director, TfL's Surface Transport
