All Aboard For An Improved 94

94 Bus Schedule to be extended

       

This evening sees the final ever Routemasterís journey from Acton to Piccadilly Circus.

This evening, Friday 23rd January at 19.30, the last ever Routemaster will leave from the Acton Green terminus and make its way to Piccadilly Circus.
The same bus will return from Piccadilly at 20.18 and is scheduled to arrive here in Chiswick at 20.51.

While not every commuter will be terribly sad to see the old buses go, there still remains many enthusiasts and nostalgic folk who will want to turn out to bid farewell to a little part of omnibus history.

In the last few days most of the Routemasters have been replaced one-by-one with the new Tridents although these have still been carrying conductors until this evening.

The 94 route is already driver-only operated in late evenings and Sundays, but will be totally so from Sat 24th.

The six Routemasters that are owned by TfL will be returned to them, however the other 18, which are owned by LU, will be sold off.
