Certain bus schedules in London will be undergoing changes for the first weekend in April, and we’ve rounded up which routes are changing.

TfL buses align with the Mayor’s Transport Strategy aiming for 80 per cent of journeys via foot, bike, or public transport by 2041.

There is currently a bus fleet of around 9,300 buses which follow across 675 different routes.

The latest timetable changes are in place to help “match demand, deliver value for money and allow TfL to invest in outer London”.

The following timetable changes are changing from Saturday, April 6:

Route 273 will be rerouted in both directions via Winn Road and Exford Road to Burnt Ash Hill. Jevington Way and Senlac Road will no longer be served. This is due to issues with parked vehicles causing issues to buses.

Route S3 will have a new timetable on all days of the week with minor changes to times.

The new times for the above routes will be available in TfL’s journey planner tool.
