London Buses route N133

Night buses in London are after-hours versions of their daytime numerical equivalents, normally running the same route but with extensions at either end of the service. This is normally to provide a night service to destinations served by tube or train during the day. The route number is prefixed with an "N" to signify a night route. However, in a few cases, a few services have route numbers that have no connection to their daytime equivalents, such as the N5, which operates in a different part of London from day route 5. There are also many 24-hour routes.

London Buses route N2 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to Arriva London.

History

Night bus N2 provides the night service for routes 2 (between Victoria & West Norwood) and 432 (between West Norwood & Crystal Palace) and continues from Victoria, to Trafalgar Square via Victoria Street, Parliament Square and Whitehall.

The route started on the night of 13 April 1984 running between Trafalgar Square and West Norwood Station using Daimler buses, run from Victoria Garage (GM), which were replaced by MCW Metrobuses later that year. The route was extended into North London on 27 October 1984 to Friern Barnet and to Crystal Palace in the south. A Holloway Garage single bus allocation was added to the two bus allocation at GM. The Victoria allocation was reduced to Saturday night only, with Holloway and Muswell Hill Garages sharing the main route from September 1987. The Holloway and Muswell Hill allocation lasted until August 1990, when it was replaced by Finchley Garage, and Holloway reduced to Saturday Nights only, replacing Victoria Garage. Buses were then extended from Frien Barnet to North Finchley for garage journeys, and all journeys by 18 August 1992. Finchley Garage was closed and the whole allocation moved to Holloway on 4 December 1993.

A further route change took place on 23 June 1995 when the section between North Finchley and Camden Town was withdrawn, with the route divering at Camden Town to terminate at Hampstead Heath which replaced the withdrawn route N93. This section was withdrawn on 27 November 1999, being replaced by a night service on route 24, and the route once again ran from Trafalgar Square now to Crystal Palace.

The route passed to Arriva London on 1 April 2000, running from Norwood (N) using Leyland Olympians, being converted to low floor operation with the day route to Volvo B7TL Alexander ALX400s in 2003.

This night route dates back at least as far as 1934, when it was numbered 294, running between Cricklewood Bus Garage and Liverpool Street station, via Marble Arch, Oxford Circus and Trafalgar Square. The route originally ran from Cricklewood Bus Garage using AEC Renown LT type double deckers. The route was then renumbered N94 in September 1960 and renumbered again to the present N16 in 1991.

N18

London Buses route N18 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to Metroline.

History

Route N18 was introduced on 13 April 1984 between Sudbury (Swan) and Aldwych via Wembley, Stonebridge Park, Harlesden, Kensal Green, Harrow Road, Royal Oak, Bishops Bridge Road, Paddington Station, Praed Street, Edgware Road, Marble Arch, Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square; with meal relief journeys projected to Liverpool Street via Fleet Street, Ludgate Circus, St. Paul’s and Bank. Although this was a new route, the only new section was from Craven Park to Sudbury as the N91 already operated between Willesden Garage and Liverpool Street via Craven Park. Garage journeys ran in service over route 260. In April 1985 the route was extended from Sudbury to Edgware over portions of routes 182 and 286, but withdrawn between Trafalgar Square and Aldwych except for the meal break projection. In August the meal relief journeys were diverted to Waterloo, running over Waterloo Bridge. After the break buses ran light to Liverpool Street and then on times as before. In September 1987 certain journeys were diverted to Watford Junction via Bushey Heath and Watford (serving route 142), diverging at Stanmore Broadway after “double running” past Stanmore Station. In October 1989 the meal relief point was changed to Victoria. At the end of January 1994 the service was withdrawn between Harrow Weald (Red Lion) and Watford. In February 2001, the route was rerouted direct via Harrow Road, instead of serving Paddington Station.[2] In 2003 the N18 was rerouted via Marylebone Road, Great Portland Street and runs across Oxford Street, instead of through it.

The N18 had always been based at the Westbourne Park garage on a contract to First Centrewest, using double deckers. But in June 2007, when route N7 was lost to Metroline which created space at Alperton (ON), so route N18 (with a higher PVR) swapped garages with route N10.

In November 2010, route N18 was transferred to Willesden Junction (WJ).

On 22 June 2013, the operation of route N18 was transferred to Metroline.

History

Route N20, like route N5, is a special night service for the Northern Line between Charing Cross and High Barnet Stations (except it does not directly serve Totteridge & Whetstone, Woodside Park, Mill Hill East or West Finchley Stations).

The route was initially numbered N1 and began operating on the morning of 28 October 1989 running from High Barnet to Charing Cross and then via the Strand to terminate at the Aldwych. Some journeys diverted via Whitehall and Westminster to Victoria Station. (Returning via Victoria Embankment and Arundel Street before continuing from Aldwych). The section between Aldwych and Trafalgar Square (Charing Cross) was withdrawn on 18 July 1992. The journeys to Victoria were withdrawn on 24 June 1995, when the route was renumbered N20, as the number N1 was needed for the night service of the day route 1.

N21

London Buses route N21 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to Go-Ahead London.

History

Night Bus Route N21 is the night service for route 21 between Bank and Lewisham, and - until 10 October 2009 - for route 233 between Eltham and Foots Cray, for route 51 between Blackfen and Foots Cray and for route 321 between New Cross Gate and Eltham and Sidcup (Police Station) and Foots Cray.

The N21 was introduced to provide a night service over the original route 21 between Central London and Sidcup (Foots Cray), but with a deviation via Avery Hill and Blackfen, to serve the University of Greenwich, which provides the route with steady patronage between there and Central London (not just at weekends either). It originally operated from Victoria to Foots Cray via its current routing but on Friday and Saturday Nights some journeys ran via New Eltham and Mottingham, terminating at Sidcup. In 1999 the route was re-structured again with the extra weekend journeys via New Eltham being revised to operate from Eltham to Chislehurst via Mottingham and was introduced to run every night (not just weekends). The original service to Foots Cray via Blackfen and Sidcup remained unchanged. Changes to the frequency meant buses running every 30 minutes between Victoria and Eltham then every 60 mins to Chislehurst and Foots Cray respectively.

In 2002, another re-structure saw the Chislehurst Journeys withdrawn and run through to Foots Cray. Instead, providing a 30 min service over the whole route. The route was also shortened to start and terminate at Trafalgar Square as opposed to Victoria. On Friday and Saturday nights, patronage was such that extras were introduced between Eltham High Street and Trafalgar Square, combined with the Foots Cray Buses providing a 15-minute service over that section of route. With the withdrawal of the Chislehurst Services, Mottingham and Chislehurst were without a night bus route until Feb 2008 when the N136 was introduced (replacing parts of the N36).

The route was further amended on 10 October 2009, being withdrawn between Blackfen and Sidcup, instead running to Bexleyheath via Blendon, Bridgen and Old Bexley along the established day route 132. The Night service to Sidcup was simultaneously replaced by a 24-hour service on route 321, restoring a night service to New Eltham after an absence of 10 years.

It replaced the night service on route 168, and was the last night route to be introduced before the major enhancement of the night bus network during the 1980s, when a great many more routes were introduced. The N68 had the meal relief journeys to Liverpool Street “livened up” in 1975, and was diverted to run via Strand and Aldwych instead of Victoria Embankment during the 1970s. It is mainly covered now by route N87, and today’s N68 covers day routes 68 and 468.[7]

N87

London Buses route N87 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to Go-Ahead London.

History

The N87 was a long-standing night-route with its origins as an all-night tram service. Introduced as route 287 after the withdrawal of the trams in 1952, it ran in both directions around a circular route in a figure of “8” from Victoria Embankment via Westminster, Kennington, Balham, Clapham, Tooting, Streatham, Brixton, Stockwell, Kennington, Elephant & Castle and Blackfriars back to Victoria Embankment. It was re-numbered N87 in 1960 in order to free up its original number for the new bus routes which were replacing the trolleybus services from the late 1950s. In later years it was rerouted to serve Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, Strand and Fleet Street instead of Victoria Embankment. Buses ran both ways around the loops every 24 minutes, which in those days made it the most frequent (and regular) night bus. It was replaced in the mid-1990s by a number of other routes when the re-organisation and enhancement of the night bus network took place, and is now covered mainly by the 88, today’s N44 and the N133.[9] On 3 June 2006, route N77 was renumbered N87. At the same time route N87 was withdrawn between Kingston and Tolworth.

N89

London Buses route N89 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to Go-Ahead London.

History

Route N89 was renumbered from 289 in 1960. It ran from London Bridge Station to Southall (Brent Road) via Bank, Holborn, Oxford Street, Marble Arch, Lancaster Gate/Notting Hill Gate, Shepherds Bush, Acton, Ealing and Hanwell. It was later diverted between Marble Arch and Lancaster Gate to serve Paddington Station. In 1976 the journeys that ran out of service to Liverpool Street were changed to run in service, and so at Bank some journeys ran to Liverpool Street instead of London Bridge, meaning that at that point the N89 ran in three different directions. In 1981 the route was diverted at Southall Town Hall to run to Uxbridge via Hayes End and Hillingdon. The route was absorbed mainly by route N207, running between Holborn and Uxbridge.[10]

Route N89 was introduced in 2003 when it replaced the withdrawn N81 between Trafalgar Square and Bexleyheath. Night bus N81 ran between Victoria Station and Bexleyheath. Throughout its existence as a South East London Night Route, the N81 had many projections and diversions, at one stage running as far as Dartford and Gillingham. The Route was then curtailed to Crayford for a short period of time before finally being cut back further to Bexleyheath. The N81 Generally followed the same routeing between Victoria and Bexleyheath, despite the changes.

The N89 runs from Trafalgar Square over most of the old N81 routing to Bexleyheath and was extended onwards to Erith via Slade Green, over the then 89 and 469 route's. The Erith Extension was introduced to prevent idling buses causing a nuisance to Slade Green residents, as well as providing a 'useful' connection. Between Lewisham and Slade Green the N89 matched the daytime 89 route, so the renumbering from N81 to N89 reflected this. The Erith extension also enabled route N53 to be curtailed at Plumstead, later to be replaced by the 53 becoming a 24-hour service between Plumstead and Whitehall only. The Thamesmead services on the N53 were replaced by an extension of the N1. With the loss of the N53 Between Plumstead and Erith, the Lesnes Heath and Upper Belvedere areas became deprived of a night bus Service, whereby other nearby areas of Northumberland Heath, North End and Slade Green—all previously unserved—gained a Night Bus with the introduction of the N89.

Night bus N89 is London's longest at 34-kilometre (21 mi) length, closely followed by the N9 at 33 kilometres (21 miles).

On 28 January 2012, London Central retained route N89 and brand new Alexander Dennis Enviro400 double deckers were introduced.

N91

London Buses route N91 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to Metroline.

History

Route N91 was renumbered from 291 in 1960 to allow for the greater need of numbers for day routes. It ran between Liverpool Street and Willesden Garage via Bank, St. Paul’s, Ludgate Circus, Fleet Street, Strand, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus, Marble Arch, Edgware Road, Harrow Road and Harlesden. It was subsequently rerouted to serve Paddington Station, and the route now forms part of today’s route 6 which runs 24 hours.[11]

The present route N91 is the night service for route 91 between Trafalgar Square and Crouch End, and the Piccadilly Line between and , albeit not serving , , , and stations. Passengers can then continue their journey using night routes N97 to Hammersmith and N9 to Heathrow Airport Central. There is currently no night service for the Uxbridge branch.

N97

London Buses route N97 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to London United.

History

Night Bus Route N97 has the distinction of being the shortest dedicated Night Bus Route at only 6 miles (9.7 km) long. However, the route began as the 297 in October 1934 (itself being renumbered from route 614) and ran between Liverpool Street and Turnham Green. It was renumbered as N97 in 1960. It ran between Liverpool Street and Turnham Green Garage via Bank, St. Paul’s, Ludgate Circus, Fleet Street, Strand, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Green Park, Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge, South Kensington, Fulham Broadway, Dawes Road, Hammersmith and Stamford Brook. It was subsequently rerouted to serve Earl’s Court. In 1977, when the Piccadilly Line was extended to Heathrow, the N97 underwent a major change when it was extended to Heathrow Airport via Chiswick, Gunnersbury, Brentford, Isleworth, Hounslow, Hounslow West, Cranford and Harlington Corner, and at the same time was introduced on Saturday night/Sunday morning and substantially increased in frequency.[12] There is no day counterpart to the route, and to travel along this route during the day from Hammersmith one would need to take route 190 to West Brompton, route 74 to Hyde Park Corner and route 9 to Trafalgar Square.

The route is primarily used as a night replacement for the Piccadilly Line between Piccadilly Circus and Hammersmith Stations. Passengers can then continue their journey using night routes N91 (to Cockfosters) or N9 (to Heathrow). There is currently no night service for the Uxbridge branch.

N98

London Buses route N98 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is contracted to Metroline.

History

Route N98 was introduced in 1960 when the night buses were renumbered with an “N” prefix from the 2×× series, and so the 298 became N98. It ran from Trafalgar Square to Hornchurch Garage via Tottenham Court Road Station, Holborn, St. Paul’s, Bank, Aldgate, Stepney Green, Mile End, Bow, Stratford, Forest Gate, Manor Park, Ilford, Seven Kings, Chadwell Heath, Romford and Roneo Corner. The Hornchurch extension was cut back to Romford Station, but some journeys were extended from Trafalgar Square to Victoria via Westminster for crews’ meal reliefs. It was one of the few night routes in the early days to run on Saturday night, but the service only came into central London as far as Holborn. The Trafalgar Square to Oxford Circus section was withdrawn in 2003, with no replacement, and instead rerouted to Holborn Red Lion Square. The original service now forms part of 24-hour route 25.[13]

Night bus N98 runs a night service for route 98 between Holborn and Willesden, and then continues to Stanmore via Kingsbury and Neasden as a night service for the Northern end of the Jubilee Line. The route is structured so that every other bus runs beyond Willesden to Stanmore.

The route was also on a contract to Centrewest, operating from Alperton (ON), using Leyland Olympians and MCW Metrobuses. In 2003, the allocation was transferred to Metroline, operating from Willesden (AC) and Edgware (EW), using Volvo B7TL / Plaxton President double deckers.

In June 2013, Alexander Dennis Enviro400 double deckers were introduced. [1]
