London Buses route 211 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Hammersmith bus station and Waterloo station, it is operated by Abellio London.

History[edit]

Route 211 was introduced on 17 July 1993 replacing Red Arrow route 511 between Waterloo and Victoria stations, before continuing to Hammersmith bus station along the existing route 11, replacing the latter north of Fulham Broadway station.

It was operated by London General until June 1998 when upon retendering passed to Travel London who introduced a fleet of Optare Excels. It was included in the sale of Travel London to Limebourne Buses in August 2000 and again to Connex in July 2001. In November 2002 the service received new Alexander ALX400 bodied Dennis Trident 2s with the service upgraded in preparation for the introduction of the London congestion charge.

Route 211 was included in the sale of the business back to Travel London in February 2004[1] which in turn was sold to Abellio London in May 2009.[2][3]

On 30 June 2012, brand new Alexander Dennis Enviro400s and Alexander Dennis Enviro400Hs were introduced[4]
