John Barry, Head of Network Development for London Buses, said: 'The introduction of route 324 reflects Transport for London's efforts to continually develop the bus network. This route will provide new links to a wide range of local facilities.
'London's bus network is constantly under review to ensure we continue to provide the best possible service for passengers.'
Councillor Phillip O'Dell, portfolio holder for environment and community safety at Harrow Council, said: 'I am pleased that after talks with Harrow Council and residents, Transport for London has agreed to the introduction of the new 324 bus route.
'We hope travel will now be made easier for residents living in parts of Stanmore and Queensbury, not previously served by a bus route.
'I also hope this will make getting about more convenient for residents and also encourage more people to leave the car at home and use public transport to get around our borough.'
Councillor Jim Moher, Lead Member for Highways and Transportation for Brent Council, said: 'Making it easier for residents to get around by public transport will ease congestion and is good the environment.
'Hopefully this new service will see more residents getting out of their cars and on to the buses for a more convenient and hassle free way of getting to the shops.'
