TfL have provided an update on the consultation held between 8 January and 11 February 2019 on changes to routes 404 and 434.  ​

The main changes proposed were:
Divert route 434 to the unserved Cane Hill estate
Extend route 404 to Rickman Hill, replacing the 434
Serve the Tollers Lane estate and Shirley Avenue with the 404
TFL have now published their consultation report, which summarises how they sought views and ideas from the community in Coulsdon as well as along the rest of the routes. The report includes their responses to the most common issues received during the consultation.  You can find the consultation report here:
They say that the feedback made clear that diverting route 434 to serve Cane Hill would cause significant disruption for the residents of Rickman Hill. Instead, they plan to extend route 404 to serve the Cane Hill estate. It will travel in an anti-clockwise loop via Farthing Way and Brighton Road.  ​
If you have any feedback about the 404 using Farthing Way (Coulsdon Bypass) then please email your views to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 
If you do not have internet access, you can have your say by phoning TfL on 0343 222 1234* or writing to ‘FREEPOST TFL CONSULTATIONS – 404 Farthing Way’ (no stamp required). Please let them know by Wednesday 11 December 2019 ​
TFL will progress the plans to serve the Tollers Lane estate and Shirley Avenue with route 404.  When deciding on the final location of bus stops they will refer to the feedback received from bus users and residents so that they are as suitably placed as possible. Route 404 will get a 30 minute service, including on Sundays. Route 434 will keep its current 30 minute frequency. TFL will aim to implement the route 404 changes in early 2020. ​
