Classification of the line numbers

In Victorian times, passengers could only distinguish the different lines and operators by the paintwork and the route sign on the side of the vehicle. After George Samuel Dicks of the London Motor Omnibus Company numbered the five lines of his company, the other bus operators at the time in London also saw the advantages of this system, so that soon all bus lines were given numbers.

Historical classification

Under the 1924 London Traffic Act law, bus routes were numbered according to the system of Chief Constable AE Bassom of the Metropolitan Police ; Letter suffixes indicated route variants and short tours, the numbers indicated the operating company. After all bus routes were taken over by London Transport in 1934 , the division was as follows:

Number range Traffic area
1-199 red Central Area double-decker lines
200-289 red Central Area monoplane lines
290-299 Central Area -night traffic
300-399 Country Area north of the River Thames (rural services have been taken over by London Country Bus Services since 1970)
400-499 Country area south of the Thames
500-699 Trolleybuses
701-799 Green Line (green intercity buses)
800-899 Country Area New Towns

Mobility buses represent route numbers from 900 to 999 : These run once a week from sparsely populated suburbs, where there are no alternatives in the main bus network, to a local shopping center. The number of Mobility bus lines has decreased because accessible buses run on all London bus routes except the museum routes.

Night lines (prefixed N-)

The night bus routes mostly correspond to a day route, which however has been extended at the ends. This is normally intended to provide a night service to stops that are served by the subway or trains during the day .

However, there are some route numbers preceded by N- that have no connection with their daily equivalents: the N5, N20 and N97 all serve a different part of London than their respective daily routes, N550 and N551 (which provide night services on parts of the DLR network) have no corresponding daily routes.

There are also 24-hour lines that run day and night, but usually at a lower frequency at night than during the day. Most of them drive like they do during the day. Line 65 is classified as a 24-hour line, but runs a longer route at night, so it should actually be called N65.

Non-TfL bus routes in Greater London

These bus routes are not advertised for TfL and are therefore not part of London Buses . All but three run from villages and towns outside Greater London to stops within Greater London (exceptions are the 812, 938 and MB1, which run entirely within the border). They are painted a color chosen by the bus company so, unlike London Buses , they are not necessarily red and most of them do not accept Oyster cards . These lines are operated with a London service permit issued by TfL, bus tickets are recognized by TfL and the lines are allowed to stop at TfL bus stops.
