London Buses route 154 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Morden and West Croydon stations, it is operated by London General.

On 21 May 2015, it was announced that the route was planned to run as a 24-hour service on Fridays and Saturdays from September, as well as 16 other services across the capital, to accompany the introduction of the 24-hour London Underground service on Friday and Saturday. The Friday and Saturday night service commenced on the early hours of Saturday 12th September[1]


Early in the morning of Sunday 6 April 2014, the back seats of the top deck of a 154 were set alight whilst passing through the Benhill area of Sutton, resulting in it being 50% damaged by smoke.[2] Two teenagers were arrested over the arson.[3]

A month later, on Saturday 3 May, a teenager was arrested after a 154 bus had to be taken out of service after it was incensed. The Morden-bound vehicle came to a stand in Stanley Park Road (Wallington) where it was attended by all the emergency services. [4]
