Norbury students launch campaign for more number 50 buses

Five students from a Norbury school have launched a campaign to increase the frequency and punctuality of the number 50 bus.
The girls from Norbury Manor Business and Enterprise College for Girls, have launched the petition for the bus which travels between Croydon and Stockwell, to run more often to avoid arguments between pupils and the public when trying to board.
The students who are aged 14 and 15, want to get 1,000 signatures on their petition, which they then plan to present to Transport for London (TfL).
The 50 bus campaign was launched in October 2012 as part of the girls' Citizenship Coursework, but they have vowed to continue with it until TfL take action.
Armani Chambers, 15, said: "The bus stop is always packed with loads of students; so many times people are left at the bus stop," while 14-year-old Tamara Scipio added: "I am always late to school because the 50 bus is not running to its correct schedule."
