This is a list of Transport for London (TfL) contracted bus routes in London, United Kingdom, as well as commercial services that enter the Greater London area (except coaches). The major operators are Go-Ahead London, Arriva London, Metroline and Stagecoach London. Other operators in London are London United, Abellio London, Tower Transit, Metrobus, Arriva Shires & Essex, Arriva Southern Counties, London Sovereign, Quality Line, Abellio Surrey, CT Plus, First Berkshire & The Thames Valley, Uno, Carousel Buses, TWH Bus & Coach, Blue Triangle, Green Line Coaches, Sullivan Buses and Imperial Buses.

TfL-sponsored operators run more than 500 services.

Non TfL-sponsored operators run 36 principal services between parts of Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex on the one hand and London on the other and one local council sponsored service each in the boroughs of Bexley, Barking and Dagenham and Hackney (extending into Islington).

Classification of route numbers[edit]

In Victorian times, passengers could only recognise an omnibus (latin: for everyone) of an owner and route by the coach's distinctive livery (colour) and line name, with painted signs on the sides showing the two termini to indicate the route. Then, in 1906, George Samuel Dicks of the London Motor Omnibus Company decided that, as the line name 'Vanguard' had proved to be very popular, he would name all lines 'Vanguard' and number the company's five routes 1 through to 5. Other operators soon saw the advantage, in that a unique route number was easier for the travelling public to remember, and so the practice of using route numbers soon spread.[1]

Historic classification[edit]

Bus routes run by London Transport were grouped as follows.

The 1924 London Traffic Act imposed numbering known as the Bassom Scheme named after Chief Constable A. E. Bassom of the Metropolitan Police who devised it. Variant and short workings for many decades used letter suffixes. The numbers reflected the company that operated the route.

The numbering was revised in 1934 after London Transport was formed:[2]

Route Number Former type of Service
1–199 "Central Area" red double-decker services
200–289 "Central Area" red single-decker services
290–299[3] "Central Area" night routes
300–399 "Country Area" north of the River Thames (rural services were operated by London Country Bus Services after 1970)
400–499 "Country Area" south of the River Thames
500–699 Trolleybuses
701–799 Green Line Coaches
800–899 "Country Area" "New Towns" routes

Current classification[edit]

Route Number Type of Service
1–599 Day routes, including 24-hour services.

The majority of routes in this sequence are run for schools to reduce overcrowding on regular bus services. Their timetables are subject to short notice alteration and re-routing in accordance with school requirements. A notable exception is route 607, which is a limited stop service operating in West London, whose number is "inherited" from the period (15 November 1936 – 8 November 1960), when this route was served by trolleybuses.[5]

Route numbers from 900 to 999 represent Mobility Buses: these provide a once a week return journey to a local shopping centre from relatively low density neighbourhoods where there is no alternative route in the main bus network. The number of Mobility Buses routes have declined because low-floor and wheelchair accessible buses run on all London Buses routes, except for the heritage route.

Night only routes (N-prefixed)[edit]

Night bus routes are often related to the day numerical equivalent, normally running the same route but with an extension at either end of the service. This is normally to provide a night service to destinations served by tube or train during the day.

However, there are a few N-prefixed route numbers that have no relation to their daytime equivalents: the N5, N20 and N97 all operate in a different part of London to their respective day routes, and the N550 and N551 (which provide night service on parts of the DLR network) have no corresponding daytime routes.

There are also 24-hour routes, which run day and night but usually with a lower frequency during the night hours. The vast majority run the same route at all times. Route 65 is classed as a 24-hour service, but unusually has an extension to its night service, rather than the night service being designated N65.

Non-TfL bus routes in Greater London[edit]

These bus routes are not contracted to TfL and are therefore not 'London Buses'. All but three run from the villages and towns outside Greater London to destinations within (the exceptions are the 812, 938 and MB1, which run entirely within the boundary). They are painted in a colour chosen by the operator, so are not necessarily red like London Buses, and most of them do not accept Oyster cards. These routes are operated with a London Service Permit issued by TfL so they are recognised by TfL bus maps and appear on TfL bus stops.

Route 724, run by a coach company, is a bus route.
