School service prioritisation and extra buses

Please note school priority services and all extra buses will continue to run until Friday 18 December.

We are committed to helping London's schools remain open and operate safely and we have added over 200 extra buses to our network. We have also prioritised 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.

These 'school services' are clearly signed and operate on a number of key routes between 0730-0900 (*some routes will run until 0930) and 1430-1630 on weekdays. On designated routes 'school services' will operate on an every other bus basis. We ask that schoolchildren travelling without adults use the designated 'school services' where these are provided, to help ensure space for customers on other services.

We are continually reviewing how our network is operating to ensure our approach is working and meeting demand as best as possible. Check this page for the latest information on our services.

Routes with extra buses being provided:
20, 33, 50, 57, 60, 89, 97, 108, 110, 116, 117, 119, 122, 130, 138, 142, 152, 153, 162, 166, 167, 170, 181, 186, 187, 195, 201, 203, 206, 215, 216, 223, 225, 226, 228, 232, 233, 234, 251, 255, 256, 265, 269, 272, 273, 275, 280, 282, 287, 289, 290, 293, 294, 300, 309, 313, 315, 317, 322, 323, 324, 325, 331, 339, 346, 352, 353, 354, 355, 356, 358, 359, 360, 362, 367, 370, 372, 376, 377, 380, 382, 383, 386, 393, 394, 395, 396, 397, 398, 401, 405, 406, 407, 411, 412, 413, 418, 428, 434, 444, 455, 462, 463, 465, 470, 474, 481, 484, 487, 491, 492, 493, 496, 498, 499, A10, B11, B12, B13, B14, B15, B16, E5, E7, E10, E11, G1, H17, H18, H20, H25, H26, H28, K1, K3, K4, K5, P5, P12, P13, R1, R2, R3, R4, R6, R8, R68, S3, S4, U3, W5, W9, W16 and X26.
