London Buses route 383 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Barnet and Woodside Park, it is operated by Metroline.

History[edit]

Route 383 commenced operating on 25 July 1998 between Potters Bar and New Barnet stations replacing part of route 326. It was operated by Metroline's Potters Bar garage with Marshall bodied Dennis Darts.

On 15 May 1999, it was extended at its northern end from Potters station to Potters Bar garage and at its southern end to Woodside Park station via Oakleigh Park.

Upon being re-tendered, it passed to Sullivan Buses' South Mimms garage on 26 July 2003 being withdrawn between Potters Bar and Barnet on the same date.[1] When next tendered, it returned to Metroline, Potters Bar on 26 July 2008.[2]

Upon being re-tendered, the route was awarded to Uno, with the transfer to occur on 25 July 2015.[3]
