Route 98 commenced on 18 July 1992 to replace route 8 between Willesden garage and Oxford Circus, before continuing to Holborn. The route has always been operated by Metroline's Willesden garage. It was initially operated by AEC Routemasters on Mondays to Saturdays in the daytime and Dennis Darts, MCW Metrobuses and Leyland Titans on Sundays and late evenings.
Due to the partial closure of Oxford Street for Crossrail works, on 16 June 2014 the route temporarily had its eastern terminus relocated from Holborn to Russell Square. It resumed operating to Holborn in August 2014.
