Nine south London routes retained, one gained from Stagecoach
LOOK IN ON LONDON
Recent tendered service awards have seen Go-Ahead London retain nine south London routes and gain another from Stagecoach Selkent. The double-deckers currently used on route 171 (Hither Green-Holborn) will move over to route 37 (Putney Heath-Peckham), while route 87 (Wandsworth-Aldwych) will receive six new hybrid double-deckers to augment the current allocation to the route.
The 386 (Woolwich-Blackheath), which Selkent has operated by from Plumstead garage since it was introduced in 1991, will move to Go-Ahead London Central next June. Eight of the single-deckers to be used will come from the current allocation of route 299 (Cockfosters-Muswell Hill), which passes to Sullivan Buses on 3 February. The balance of the allocation has yet to be confirmed.
