Template:Use dmy dates This is a list of Transport for London (TfL) contracted bus routes in London, United Kingdom, as well as commercial services that enter the Greater London area (except coaches). The major operators in the London area are Go-Ahead London, Arriva London, Metroline and Stagecoach London. Other operators in London are London United, Abellio London, Tower Transit, . If you are using Travelcard to get around London these are accepted on the bus network as well. Alternatively Oyster Cards (see London Underground) can be used for payment on buses. If you don’t have an Oyster Card or Travelcard you may need to purchase your ticket at the bus stop before you board a bus, especially in Central London.

London’s transport systems–the Tube, the classic double-decker buses and even the cute black cabs–have all become icons of the city. Right up there with Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Crown Jewels and those bizarre bearskin London Underground is not only the world’s oldest underground railway line but also one of the fastest ways to criss cross this great capital. Central London’s first ever fully electric bus routes will be rolled out by the end of the year with USB sockets so passengers can charge their phones. Sadiq Khan today announced 51 electric.

Unlike airlines, buses in Europe often have generous luggage allowances that don’t come at an extra cost. Company policies do vary so it is best to check with the company to be on the safe side. However, the general rule is that you are allowed a bigger bag to go in the hold and a smaller bag, one that fit above or underneath the seat. The best bus route in London starts in Kensington: Hop on the number 9 on the prime shopping thoroughfare of Kensington High Street, which is just steps from the contemporary Attlee and the classic MacDonald, both of which sleep up to six.. The bus will run along the south side of the elegant Hyde Park, the perfect place for a picnic in the spring and summer.
