LOOK IN ON LONDON
Heathrow Airport, which withdrew financial support for local buses last year (Look in on London January 2021), has now resumed funding for some services.
The airport operator is working with service providers and local authorities to promote and reintroduce some of the routes that were cut back. Its new Sustainable Travel Zone (STZ) is primarily designed to reduce single-occupancy car use by airport staff. Initial funding has been focussed on the 15 postcode areas around the airport where over a third of Heathrow's workforce live.
