London Buses route 167 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Ilford and Loughton station, it is operated by Stagecoach London.

History[edit]

Upon being re-tendered, on 7 March 1992 the route passed to Grey-Green.[1]

Upon being re-tendered, on 9 March 2002 route 167 passed to Docklands Buses.[citation needed] It was included in the September 2006 sale of Docklands Buses to Go-Ahead Group.[2] Docklands Buses retained when re-tendered with a new contract commencing in March 2007.[3]

Blue Triangle successfully tendered to retain the route with a new contract commencing on 10 March 2012.[4]

On 11 March 2017 the route was shortened, terminating at Loughton Station, instead of Debden following a withdrawal of subsidy from Essex County Council.[5] The new operator was Stagecoach.

During the summers of 2018 and 2019, the route was to be diverted, because of the reconstruction of Alderton Bridge, via new roads, Brook Road and Brooklyn Avenue, to rejoin the A121.
