The RV1 is just one route: there are others, currently serving the E&C, that are also in the line of fire.
Indeed, just Blackfriars Road
and London Bridge have nine affected routes (https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/32943d3b/
In particular, only a year or so after the 388 was extended to E&C to replace the 100 bus, it's proposed to take it away. Instead, the 40 will be rerouted from the E&C to Clerkenwell Green which, I guess will be handy, since the 172 will no longer run St George's Circus
to Clerkenwell Green.
The 45 will terminate at E&C, halving the frequency of buses from St George's Circus
to Kings Cross.
All of this is at a time when the numbers of people travelling to and from the Blackfriars Road
is increasing hugely, with residential flats, hotels, and businesses all moving to the area.
