London Buses route H13 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Northwood Hills and Ruislip Lido, it is operated by London Sovereign.

History[edit]

Route H13 replaced the withdrawn section of route 114 between Ruislip Lido and Ruislip Station on 14 November 1987 as part of the Harrow Buses scheme. The H13 initially ran Monday to Friday using Metrorider minibuses, but gained a Sunday service in 2004 and brand new low-floor Dennis Darts the same year. The route was extended to St Vincent's Park on 28 October 2006.

Even though it's an H-route, the H13 does not serve Harrow at all, much like the H12. The route is almost a circular route, terminating either side of Ruislip Common.

Upon bring re-tendered, the route was retained by London Sovereign with a new contract commencing on 4 September 2004. [1] London Sovereign retained the route when next tendered, with a new contract commencing on 5 September 2009. [2]
