Route 243 only ran Monday–Saturday while route 243A provided the Sunday service.
Sunday service was introduced on the 243 between Wood Green and Old Street to replace the discontinued route 243A and was extended Monday–Friday from Old Street to Waterloo Station to replace the Red Arrow route 505.
In 2002, the 243 was extended to serve Waterloo Station at all times, and the route was converted to a 24-hour service.
Wood Green gained part of the allocation in 1966, this allocation was transferred to Tottenham (AR) in 1971.
Tottenham (AR) gained the whole allocation in 1985, and the 243 was converted to one-person operation using Metrobuses.
