The 109 used to go to the end of my road. It's already a pisser that I have to walk 20 minutes to get it (usually carrying loads of stuff to Brixton), now it's going to be 40 minutes from home at night and the trams will have stopped.TFL have launched a consultation on bus route changes in Croydon - broadly speaking, the proposal is that more (not all) routes coming from north of Croydon will terminate at West Croydon Bus Station, and more (again not all) routes from the south / west will terminate south of the shopping centre, rather than crossing the town centre.
As with what's happening where I now live this means that where a route is covered by two separate services IE a bus and tram or two buses, they are probably cutting one of those routes back a bit so as it's only covered by one service going forward.
for most of us it's an inconvenience, for many, IE disabled people, the elderly, people with mobility issues, with loads of shopping, children in tow, it could be a nightmare having to change services to complete the journey.
For what it's worth, can only suggest responding accordingly to the consultation, making other people aware, rattling the cage of borough councillor/s and GLA members.The 109 used to go to the end of my road.

Probably won't affect me personally very much, I tend to walk everywhere, however it's obviously going to be a massive ball ache for many, especially commuters that connect by the two main Croydon stations by bus and those who are less mobile.
oh Thanks Hoss - that's it - the Joiners Arms - been there and it was lovely. Couldn't recall itMiss-Shelf Woodside Green pubs are The Joiners Arms and The Beehive, but having just searched, it appears The Beehive is permanently closed.
The Joiners is the nicer of the 2 anyway. If you're going that way then I'd definitely put The Claret on on your list. It's conveniently located next to Addiscombe tram stop!
