London Buses route 133 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England, running between Streatham and Liverpool Street stations.

History[edit]

In September 2009, Arriva London was awarded the contract to route 133, commencing in January the following year and operating from the Brixton garage.[2] The route has since been transferred to the Norwood garage.[3]

In November 2010, the route was criticised for running empty between Streatham and the bus garage, a section of route over which some residents had previously campaigned for more frequent services.[4]

On 6 October 2012, the new Streatham Bus Station was opened near to the old Streatham Garage and became the new southern terminus for Route 133.[5]

Current route[edit]

Route 133 operates via these primary locations[6]
