Superloop has made its debut in Enfield, unveiling a network of express routes in outer London. This initiative, a crucial element of the Mayor of London's commitment to enhancing the bus network in the outskirts, links town centers, hospitals, schools, and transport hubs. The recently launched SL1 route, commencing on 9 December, bridges North Finchley and Walthamstow Central. By connecting these points, SL1 offers increased transport options for commuting between key locations in Barnet, Enfield, and Waltham Forest.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and Transport for London (TfL) have launched two brand new express bus services in outer London. Both the SL10 route between Harrow and North Finchley and the SL1 between North Finchley and Walthamstow Central, are in operation as of 9 December.
The Superloop is a network of express routes in outer London connecting town centres, hospitals, schools and transport hubs and is a key part of the Mayor’s commitment to improving the bus network in outer London.
The SL1 connecting North Finchley and Walthamstow Central will give people more transport options to move between key locations such as transport hubs and town centres in Barnet, Enfield and Waltham Forest, as well as providing extra bus capacity on the busiest parts of the route.
The SL1 will run every 12 minutes Monday to Saturday and every 15 minutes on evenings and Sundays. This service, combined with the 34, will mean customers can expect a bus every five to six minutes during Monday to Saturday.
Some of the bus stop names on the SL1 route will change to better reflect their locations including:
The full loop of the Superloop will be complete by Spring 2024, as the SL2, SL3 and SL5 enter service. The SL4 which runs from Canary Wharf to Grove Park will open in 2025.
