Is taking the bus to work as convenient as taking the tube? Thinking of getting a place that by bus has a lesser commute than train but worried about traffic, frequency, etc. of the bus. Basically 20 mins bus vs 27 mins tube? Thanks!

London buses are amazing. Once you go bus you’ll never want to go via tube again (time permitting). I lived in Angel, always went for the bus

I much prefer the bus both in NYC and London. I much prefer not climbing any types of long flights of stairs or escalators and having a nice view on the way to work rather than packed in like a sardine, hoping not to fall on someone and staring into space to avoid eye contact. I got chewed out on here last time I expressed that opinion so be careful.

just to clarify - those two commute times are for two different places I am considering to live in.

Con of the bus would be getting stuck in traffic. But on the plus side the bus is above ground so you'd actually get mobile network there as opposed to underground

🚴‍♀️ biking can be also an option! Just saying 😊

Buses can use bus lanes so traffic is not such a problem as it is for cars etx

Buses are generally good for most central areas - you save a tonne too.

If it’s that’s much by a bus, you could consider cycling as an option or E-scooter or something else as well

So the 27 min buy bus can’t go that wrong

Also assuming you are not in London - or else you could just try it out

Buses are good, when they run on time and don’t divert or get stuck in traffic because you don’t feel like a sardine and actually get “fresh” air 🤣

That being said - the Elizabeth line is allowing those who live further out have a shorter and more comfortable commute than most 🥲
