London Buses route 430 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between South Kensington station and Roehampton, it is operated by London General.

History[edit]

Route 430 was introduced on 23 November 2002 between West Brompton station and Roehampton when route 74 was withdrawn between Putney and Roehampton as part of a reorganisation of routes in preparation for the introduction of the London congestion charge.[1] It initially operated from West Brompton station being extended to South Kensington station on 13 January 2007 in preparation for the Western extension of the congestion charge.[2] It has always been operated by London General's Putney garage.
