Following on from London Bus Routes One By One: 1–100 and London Bus Routes One By One: 101–200, this third volume in the series explores what used to be the old London Transport’s highest-numbered block of routes. These numbers were once reserved for single-deck services, but the weight of post-war expansion soon filled in the sequence. As in previous volumes, a potted history of each route is accompanied by a list of points served and one or two pictures of the kind of bus that can be found in service today. The pace of tendering and Transport for London’s imperative towards emissions-free propulsion has meant increasingly rapid turnover of bus models, which are expected to last the length of two full-term contracts of seven years before replacement. Illustrated with over 190 color photographs, this volume represents an up-to-date snapshot of the fascinating modern London bus scene as it stands in autumn 2021.

Matthew Wharmby was running a fine website about London Buses even before this website existed - and we've been around for over a quarter of a century! So his knowledge of the London bus scene is unsurpassed and it's good to learn that he has now published a third volume of his tour de force 'London Bus Routes One by One'. This edition covers the routes 201-300, following on from 1-100 and 101-200.

This volume looks at what used to be London Transport's highest-numbered block of routes, once reserved for single-deck services, but the weight of post-war expansion soon filled in the sequence. A potted history of each route is accompanied by a list of points served and images of buses in service today. With 96 pages and over 190 colour photographs, it represents an up-to-date snapshot of the routes in 2021.
