Other News:

Due to issues with delivery of new buses to cascade buses for the 152, 163 and 164, and bus lease deadlines, L1/Heathrow Buses are to loan ex-Metroline Scania N230UD/East Lancs Olympus buses from Ensignbus to cover. This allows the cascaded fleet and transferred fleet to be deep-cleaned, as well as relieve overcrowding on the bus routes. However, as this arrangement will not start until June 2017, the timetable for routes 163 and 164 will be significantly slowed in order to increase reliability on the routes due to the overcrowding.

Part of the site of L1/Group's DI (Brentford Dockside) Garage (Commerce Road site) will move to form a new garage near Chiswick Roundabout in June 2017. It will be split from DI and will gain the code CK (Chiswick).

From 24th June 2017, Route X26 will gain an every 30 minute night service.

Due to the new X26 night service:
From 4th November 2017, Route N111 will be extended to Sutton, Bushey Road
From 4th November 2017, Route N4 will be withdrawn between Streatham Station and Croydon, Park Street
Route N4 will be replaced by new Route N250 between Clapham Junction, Falcon Road & Croydon, Park Street

From 4th November 2017, Route 490 will gain an every 30 minute night service with an addition of 2 journeys.

From 11th November 2017, Route 22 will be de-converted from LT operation, as the route is changed in Barnes to terminate at Barnes Pond, which cannot accommodate the LT buses. Thus the LTs will move from Route 22 to Routes 87 and N87. New Volvo B5LH/Wright Eclipse Gemini 3 buses will replace the LTs on the 22, ordered against the 87/N87 contract.

Routes 190, 283, 311, 480, 483 are involved in a large change, resulting in tenders being re-negotiated:
Route 190 will be extended from West Brompton via 311 to Aldwych, and moved onto the 311 contract.
As a result, route 311 will be withdrawn. As LTs cannot fit via Richmond, they will be redistributed.
Route 480 will be rerouted away from Richmond to Kew Riverside via 311, then routed via the 483 between Stamford Brook and White City Estate, thus running between Ealing Broadway and Kew Riverside.
Route 283 will be diverted away from East Acton, instead running via 483 to Maida Hill.
Route 483, as a result, will be withdrawn.
This change will happen on 7th January 2018

Routes 13/N13 will be extended from Aldwych to London Bridge from 7th January 2018
Route N9 will be rerouted from Aldgate to Shoreditch Church via Liverpool Street from 7th January 2018

Route N22 will be extended from Fulwell to Kingston from 7th January 2018

Due to heavily reduced patronage on Route N97, the N97 will be withdrawn from 7th January 2018. Replacements include Routes N74, N117, 278N.

From 20th January 2018, the following changes will happen in Southall:
90: Withdrawn between Yeading White Hart and Southall North, extended instead to Northolt Station. PVR reduction.
95: Extended from Southall Station to Southall Bus Garage South. No PVR change.
204: Withdawn between Greenford Broadway and Southall North. PVR reduction of 2.
207: Withdrawn between Southall Town Hall and Southall North, extended instead to Southall Bus Garage South. No PVR change.

New Route 429 (24hr route) will run between Notting Hill Gate and Wembley Stadium, via parts of Route 23 and 18. This route will start on 20th January 2018

Route 392 will be rerouted away from Hanwell, diverted from Brentford Watermans Centre via Ealing Road, South Ealing to Ealing Broadway (Haven Green). Thus, the route will run Brixton-Ealing Broadway. 
To cover the loss of night service on Boston Manor Road, Route N164 will be rerouted away from North Acton to Ealing Hospital via current 456.
This change will happen on 20th January 2018

Large changes in South-East London will also occur:
129: Extended from Greenwich to Lewisham
178, 244, 291 to be converted to double deck
180: Extended from Belvedere to Erith Quarry, although withdrawn from Belvedere Industrial Estate, see 401
301: New route between Woolwich and Bexleyheath via Thamesmead

Route RV1 will get two new Van-Hool hydrogen buses from later this year.

IMPORTANT NEWS:
L1/Group has bought Rotala Group, and due to competition concerns,the garages in London will be sold off as follows:
Croydon (C) Garage will be sold to New Citybus, with routes 196, 202, 320 and 434 moving.
Willesden (AC) Garage will be sold to Tower Transit, with routes 28 and 302 moving.

Other News:

Routes 190, 283, 311, 480, 483 are involved in a large change, resulting in tenders being re-negotiated:
Route 190 will be extended from West Brompton via 311 to Aldwych, and moved onto the 311 contract.
As a result, route 311 will be withdrawn. As LTs cannot fit via Richmond, they will be redistributed.
Route 480 will be rerouted away from Richmond to Kew Riverside via 311, then routed via the 483 between Stamford Brook and White City Estate, thus running between Ealing Broadway and Kew Riverside.
Route 283 will be diverted away from East Acton, instead running via 483 to Maida Hill.
Route 483, as a result, will be withdrawn.

Routes 13/N13 will be extended from Aldwych to London Bridge from January 2018

From 24th June 2017, Route X26 will gain an every 30 minute night service.

Routes 111/N111 has been delayed for tender within Tranche 354 due to more ongoing negotiations.

Part of the site of L1/Group's DI (Brentford Dockside) Garage (Commerce Road site) will move to form a new garage near Chiswick Roundabout within the next two years. It will be split from DI and will gain the code CK (Chiswick).

Route RV1 will get two new Van-Hool hydrogen buses from later this year.

Other News:

Route 369, due to contract disputes and the works at Hammersmith Bridge, means that the 369 has been double decked, and will go to L1/Heathrow Buses from November. This means the route will initially terminate at Barnes Red Lion until Hammersmith Bridge works are finished.

Route 110 is subject to a consultation for the service to run Isleworth Fire Station-Hounslow-Twickenham-West Middlesex Hospital instead of West Mid-Twickenham, and this change will be implemented in June 2016.

Routes 33/N, 72/N, 209, 283, 369, 419, 485 will be affected by the closure of Hammersmith Bridge for a year to strengthen the bridge so the bridge can hold double deckers. Routes 33/N and 419 will be curtailed at Castlenau. Route 283 will only run between East Acton and Hammersmith Bus Station. Route 485 is diverted from Barnes Red Lion to Barnes Wetland Centre. Route 369 is curtailed at Barnes Red Lion. Routes 72/N and 209 are diverted between Barnes Red Lion and Hammersmith via Putney Bridge.
Once the bridge is re-opened, Routes 33 and 72/N will be converted to double deckers. Route 209 will convert to double deck and will be diverted between Hammersmith and Turnham Green Station via Great West Road, Cedars Road, Hogarth Roundabout, Ellesmere Road, Sutton Court Road, Turnham Green and Chiswick Park Station to line of route at Acton Green.
Route 369 will convert to double deck before the bridge reopens..
Routes 283 will be evaluated for double decker working.
Routes 10N and 33N will be replaced by Route N10, which will run from King's Cross to Fulwell (LU Garage). This change will be implemented once Hammersmith Bridge is reopened. This will be operated by London United, from Stamford Brook Garage, using existing buses from the 27 and E3.

Route N22 will be extended from Fulwell (Heathrow Buses Garage) to Kingston via Route 281.

New route 426 is a route from Bromley North Station to Brockley Rise via Shortlands and Beckenham.

Route 125 will be extended from Finchley Central to Colindale Superstores from August 2016.

Route 482 will be extended from Northolt to Harrow Bus Station (partly replacing N69). Route 120N, to be renumbered N120, under that same consultation, will be extended to Harrow Weald via the former N69, current 140N and 395. The N69 will be withdrawn completely. Both changes are approved and will take place in July 2016.

Route N44 will be extended to Belmont via N111, which will be withdrawn between Thornton Heath and Belmont.

New Route N164 will run from Acton via Chiswick, Barnes Bridge then via 495 then 164 to Sutton. It will be tendered separately.

Part of the site of L1/Group's DI (Brentford Dockside) Garage (Commerce Road site) will move to form a new garage near Chiswick Roundabout within the next two years. It will be split from DI and will gain the code CK (Chiswick).

Route RV1 will get two new Van-Hool hydrogen buses from later this year.
