Weblog creator Mark Hadfield contacted Transport for London to ask why his native buses (the 55 and the C2) have such extensively differing numbers, and to search out out who precisely decides which quantity goes on every route.
Mr. Hadfield took to his weblog to share together with his readers the splendidly detailed and useful response he obtained from an nameless TfL consultant.
