We can bring back the 505-bus route to Waltham Abbey. But I need your
help to do it.

The 505 bus, running between Chingford and Harlow, is no longer in service. Now, not a single bus
operates between Waltham Abbey and Chingford – this is simply unacceptable, especially when so many
students, disabled persons, elderly residents, healthcare workers, and other regular commuters have relied
on this route.

The extension of ULEZ to the Waltham Forest boundary by Sadiq Khan has deprived many residents of the
use of their own cars and he has failed to deliver sufficient investment into our local bus services. How else
are we going to encourage more people to take up sustainable forms of transport, if they are not made
frequent and reliable?

I am calling on Transport for London to restore a regular, daily London Bus link between Waltham Abbey
and neighbouring Chingford by extending route 215 (which currently terminates at the Lea Valley Camp
Site on Sewardstone Road – just within the Waltham Abbey boundary), and route 379 (which also
terminates on Sewardstone Road) to at least Waltham Abbey Town Centre.

Join me, and 1000’s of other local residents in our campaign to get better transport connections for you
and your family.

Over the last few years, we have worked tirelessly to deliver on your priorities - this includes building a
Whipps Cross that is fit for the future, delivering a new Station Road Conservation area, opening a Barclay’s
banking hub on Station Road and securing funding to rebuild Highams Park School and upgrade Chingford
Foundation School.

To make our case even stronger, please share your views on my campaign to bring back the 505 bus route
by filling out the attached survey. You can send it back using the freepost envelope provided or complete
it online at and together, we can improve transport links to
Waltham Abbey.
