This article is a list of Transport for London (TfL) contracted London Bus routes in London, as well as commercial services that enter the Greater London area (except coaches).

Classification of route numbersEdit

Historic classificationEdit

Historically, bus routes run by London Transport were grouped by the type of service that they provided.

The 1924 London Traffic Act imposed a numbering scheme known as the Bassom Scheme, named after the chief constable of the Metropolitan Police. The odd letters came into use because the full length of a route was allocated the main number. Short workings used letter suffixes. The numbers reflected the company that operated the route.

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

Route Number 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
500–699 Trolleybuses
700–800 Green Line Coaches

Many of these routes are run for schools to reduce overcrowding on regular bus services. 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 [2].

These are Mobility Bus Routes. These routes provide a once a week return journey to a local shopping centre where there is no alternative route in the main bus network. The prevalence of low-floor buses across London has reduced somewhat the number of Mobility Bus services.

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.

However, in a few cases, a few services have a route number that has no connection to its daytime equivalent, such as the N5, which operates in a different part of London to day route 5.

There are also 24-hour routes, which are listed in the day routes above, shaded blue. Route 65 is classed as a 24-hour service, but unusually has an extension to its night service, rather than the night service being designated N65.
