Over the last year a huge campaign has been run across the borough to get the number 5 bus rerouted so that it stops at Queen’s Hospital in Romford. The number 5 goes straight through the borough and would be of great benefit for people, meaning that residents would only have to take one bus rather than changing – or making the walk from Romford town centre.

If you are a regular user of the Number 5 Bus service which runs through Dagenham, you should start seeing a better service with more frequent buses.

Route 5 is a high frequency bus service with increasing passenger numbers.
