Transport for London (TfL) advises passengers online that there will be fewer buses in services.
Many Croydon routes, including the 250 from Brixton to Fairfield Halls, the 289 from Elmers End to Purley and the 60 from Old Coulsdon to Streatham are described as 'likely to be disrupted' by TfL, with passengers advised to use other transport services or to walk or cycle.
