The purpose of this project was to recommend improvements to the bus network in the London Borough of Merton that would increase bus ridership, and decrease traffic congestion. We arrived at these conclusions after reviewing the literature on different international bus systems, examining the existing bus network in Merton, and interviewing traffic experts. Our report identifies several changes to the existing bus network that will improve the bus service and increase ridership.
