London Buses route A10
|End||Heathrow Airport Central bus station|
|Length||8 miles (13 km)|
The route was inaugurated on 31 August 1996 to link Uxbridge and Heathrow Airport, halving the time it took to travel between them. It also serves the Stockley Park business estate. London Buslines had in fact won the original contract for the route, but was absorbed by CentreWest between this time and the start of operations. CentreWest thus inherited seven Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Darts, among the first low-floor Darts in London, which sported a blue and yellow livery, with a diagonal red stripe. The buses bore the slogan "Heathrow fast...and it is". CentreWest was bought out by First Group in March 1997, and as a result their logo was added to the livery.
