London Buses route 70 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to Meroline.


Route 70 was introduced on March 2, 1991 as a Monday to Saturday route running between Acton and Kensington, from the Gold Arrow Westbourne Park Garage using midibuses. On February 8, 1993 the route was extended daytimes to South Kensington, and extended at all times on June 14, 2000 when a Sunday service was also added. June 2000 also saw the contract pass from First to Thorpes from their Wembley Garage. During June 2003, the allocation moved to the new West Perivale Garage. The route is now operated by Metroline, following their purchase and subsequent renaming of Thorpes during August 2004. On October 2010, the route was temporarily rerouted to serve Paddington and Lancaster Gate Stations due to roadworks around Bayswater however this only lasted until November.
