London Buses route 405 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Redhill and West Croydon station, it is operated by London General and Arriva London.

History[edit]

Route 405 was previously part of the London Country South West network, operating from Crawley to West Croydon station. On 21 April 2001 it became a Transport for London route between Redhill and Croydon. Upon being tendered it passed to Connex.

Upon being re-tendered, on 20 August 2003 the route passed to Metrobus. Upon being re-tendered, it was retained by Metrobus with a new contract commencing in August 2008.[1]

In June 2014 route 405 was included in the transfer of Metrobus' London operations to fellow Go-Ahead Group subsidiary London General. However, the vehicles used continue to carry Metrobus branding. Two morning and one afternoon school services are operated by Arriva London.
