School service prioritisation and extra buses

We are committed to helping London's schools remain open and operate safely and to help this we have added over 200 extra buses to our network. We are also prioritising some of our bus services for school travel. Government guidance allows for all seats to be occupied on these 'school services', doubling their capacity, which is currently limited due to necessary social distancing.

On key school routes 'school services' will operate on an every other bus basis between 0730-0900 (*some routes will run until 0930) and 1430-1630 on schooldays. These 'school services' are clearly signed and we ask that school children travelling without adults use these designated 'school services' when possible to help ensure space for customers on other services.

We continue to review how our bus network is operating to ensure our approach is working and meeting demand as best as possible. Keep checking back to this page for the latest information on our services.

Routes with extra buses being provided:
20, 33, 50, 57, 60, 61, 89, 97, 108, 116, 117, 119, 122, 130, 142, 152, 162, 166, 167, 170, 181, 186, 187, 193, 201, 203, 206, 215, 216, 223, 226, 228, 232, 233, 234, 251, 255, 256, 265, 269, 272, 273, 275, 280, 282, 289, 290, 293, 294, 300, 309, 313, 314, 317, 324, 325, 331, 336, 339, 352, 353, 354, 355, 356, 358, 359, 360, 362, 367, 370, 372, 376, 377, 380, 382, 383, 393, 394, 395, 397, 398, 401, 406, 407, 412, 413, 418, 434, 444, 455, 462, 463, 365, 470, 474, 481, 484, 487, 491, 492, 493, 496, 498, 499, B11, B12, B13, B14, B15, B16, E5, E7, E10, E11, G1, H17, H18, H20, H22, H25, H28, K1, K3, K4, K5, P5, P12, P13, R2, R3, R4, R6, R68, S3, S4, U3, W5, W9, W16 and X26 plus school routes 601, 602, 606, 608, 612, 613, 616, 617, 624, 626, 627, 628, 629, 631, 632, 635, 638, 639, 640, 642, 643, 651, 652, 653, 655, 656, 657, 661, 662, 663, 664, 667, 669, 671, 674, 675, 677, 678, 679, 681, 683, 684, 686, 687, 688, 689, 690, 692, 696, 697 and 698.
