London Buses route 87 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Aldwych and Wandsworth, it is operated by London General.


Route 87 is the renumbering of the former route 77A from 3 June 2006 in line with TfL's policy of removing letter-suffixed routes.[1]

Upon being re-tendered, the route was retained by London General with a new contract commencing on 1 June 2013.[2][3]
