Rio Cinema, Dalston Hackney. Well done!

In 2008, we began a campaign to persuade Transport for London (TfL) to add the
Rio’s name to two adjacent bus stops. After four years the promised renaming had
not taken place but in July this year we finally received an apology and an
assurance from TfL that this would be done “once the Olympics were over”.
The eagle eyed among you may have noticed that the bus stops have now been
changed and the Rio is officially a landmark on TfL’s bus routes.
The on-board bus announcements and electronic signs may take a little while
longer to update but we would like to thank TfL for fulfilling their promise
and, more importantly, to congratulate Rio Board member Laurian Davies on her
dogged determination to see this through.
Our sincere thanks once again to everyone who signed the original petition and
expressed their support in other ways
