September Improvements to Bus Services

s network is kept under regular review. As part of this we develop proposals for changes to services.

In early September we will be making a number of improvements to bus services in North West London, to meet increasing demand and to bring evening and Sunday frequencies into line with other periods.
From Saturday 3 September:

Route 140 (Heathrow Airport – Harrow Weald)

  • New more environmentally friendly hybrid buses with Euro VI standard engines will be introduced.
  • Frequencies will be increased during Monday to Friday morning peak to every 6-7 minutes (previously every 7 minutes) and during Monday to Saturday daytime to every 7 minutes (previously every 7-8 minutes).

Route 182 (Harrow Weald – Brent Cross shopping centre)

  • New more environmentally friendly hybrid buses with Euro VI standard engines will be introduced.
  • Frequencies will be increased on Sunday daytime and each evening to every 10 minutes (previously every 12 minutes).
  • Increasing demand on this route between North Wembley and Harrow will also addressed by new route 483 from Saturday 10 September 2016 – details below.

From Saturday 10 September:

Route 83 (Ealing Hospital – Golders Green)

  • Route 83 will run between Alperton and Golders Green only.
  • New route 483 will take over the section between Ealing Hospital and Alperton and continue to Harrow bus station via Wembley, East Lane and Northwick Park Hospital (overlapping with route 83 between Alperton and Wembley Stadium).
  • The night route will continue to run between Ealing Hospital and Golders Green and will be renumbered N83.

Please see this route map for details. This follows a consultation we ran earlier this year.
