Abellio to start running “New Routemaster” buses with award of contract for route 159/N159

 

Abellio are delighted to announce that we’ve secured the contract to operate route 159/N159 in the latest round of TfL tender awards announced last week.

The route will start in December 2015 and operate from Battersea depot using 34 New Routemaster buses. The route runs between Streatham to Marble Arch.  This will not only be Abellio's largest route but also the first to operate with the New Routemaster buses.
