Bus Routes in London Wiki

The majority of routes in this sequence are run for schools to reduce overcrowding on regular bus services. These routes only run Monday to Friday. Their timetables are subject to short notice alteration and re-routing in accordance with school requirements. A notable exception is route 607, which is a limited stop service operating in West London, whose number is "inherited" from the period (15 November 1936 – 8 November 1960), when this route was served by trolleybuses.
