This is a list of Transport for London (TfL) contracted bus routes in London, England, as well as commercial services that enter the Greater London area (except coaches). Bus services in London are operated by Abellio London, Arriva London, HCT Group, Go-Ahead London (Blue Triangle, Docklands Buses, London Central, and London General), Metroline, RATP Group (London Sovereign and London United) Stagecoach London (East London, Selkent, and Thameside), Sullivan Buses, Tower Transit, and Uno. TfL-sponsored operators run more than 500 services.

Non-TfL-sponsored operators include Arriva Shires & Essex, Arriva Southern Counties, Carousel Buses, Diamond South East, Go-Coach, First Berkshire & The Thames Valley, Metrobus, Southdown PSV, Stagecoach South and Trustybus.

Classification of route numbers[edit]

In Victorian times, passengers could recognise the owner and the route of an omnibus (Latin: "for everyone") only by its livery and its line name, with painted signs on the sides showing the two termini to indicate the route. Then, in 1906, George Samuel Dicks of the London Motor Omnibus Company decided that, as the line name 'Vanguard' had proved to be very popular, he would name all lines 'Vanguard' and number the company's five routes 1 through to 5. Other operators soon saw the advantage, in that a unique route number was easier for the travelling public to remember, and so the practice of using route numbers soon spread.[1]

Historic classification[edit]

Feltham tram (in use up to 1933) showing only two slots for the route number.

Bus routes run by London Transport were grouped as follows.

The London Traffic Act 1924 imposed numbering known as the Bassom Scheme, named after Superintendent (later Chief Constable) Arthur Ernest Bassom of the Metropolitan Police who devised it. For many decades, variant and short workings used letter suffixes (e.g. "77B"). The numbers reflected the company that operated the route.

The numbering was revised in 1934 after London Transport was formed:

Route number Former type of service
1–199 "Central Area" red double-decker services
200–289 "Central Area" red single-decker services
290–299 "Central Area" night routes
300–399 "Country Area" north of the River Thames (rural services were operated by London Country Bus Services after 1970)
400–499 "Country Area" south of the River Thames (rural services were operated by London Country Bus Services after 1970)
500–699 Trolleybuses
701–799 Green Line Coaches
800–899 "Country Area New Towns" routes

Current classification[edit]

Route Number Type of service
1–599 Most local day routes, including 24-hour services
600–699 School services, normally operating only one return journey per day*
700–899 Regional and national coach services
900–999 One mobility service within TfL, detailed below
N-prefixed routes Night routes
X-prefixed routes Express routes
Other letter-prefixed routes Local day routes, including 24-hour services, with the letter(s) denoting a key area the bus travels through.

List of routes[edit]

All routes operate in both directions unless detailed.

900–999[edit]

Route numbers from 900 to 999 represent Mobility Buses; these provide a once-a-week return journey to a local shopping centre from relatively low-density neighbourhoods where there is no alternative route in the main bus network. The number of Mobility Buses routes has declined because low-floor and wheelchair-accessible buses run on all London Buses routes.

Night only routes (N-prefixed)[edit]

Night bus routes are often related to the day numerical equivalent, normally running the same route but with an extension at either end of the service. This is normally to provide a night service to destinations served by tube or train during the day.[24]

However, there are a few N-prefixed route numbers that have no relation to their daytime equivalents: the N5, N20, and N97 all operate in a different part of London to their respective day routes, and the N550 and N551 (which provide night service on parts of the DLR network) have no corresponding daytime routes.[24]

There are also 24-hour routes, which run day and night but usually with a lower frequency during the night hours. The vast majority run the same route at all times. With the introduction of the Night Tube, some day routes have been extended to run during Friday and Saturday nights to serve the stations.

Non-TfL bus routes in Greater London[edit]

These bus routes are not contracted to TfL and are therefore not 'London Buses'. All but three run from villages and towns outside Greater London to destinations within (the exception being 812, which runs entirely within the boundary). They are painted in a colour chosen by the operator, so are not necessarily red like London Buses, and most of them do not accept Oyster cards. These routes are operated with a London Service Permit issued by TfL so they are recognised by TfL bus maps and appear on TfL bus stops.[citation needed]
