Arriva London

Arriva London is one of the largest bus operators in London. We've been carrying passengers around the UK's capital since 1980, although our heritage goes back over a hundred years.

We provide around 18% of the capital’s bus services, operating about 100 routes under contract to Transport for London. Each year this adds up to transporting nearly 300 million passengers for more than 50 million miles!

Our routes crisscross London from Enfield in the north to Coulsdon and beyond in the south and as far east as Lakeside and Dartford. In central London our buses pass famous landmarks such as Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and Hyde Park.

How we work with Transport for London

Contracts involve routes, vehicles and timetables specified by Transport for London. There are set performance targets and these are closely monitored to ensure our services are of the highest quality.

Buses to be proud of

Our fleet of 1600 vehicles includes over 400 hybrid vehicles, just under 300 New Routemasters and 10 electric buses, with more to follow in 2021. Around 85% of our fleet are double-deckers.

Although our main business is providing transport for the needs of the modern capital in which we live and work, we take pride in our heritage too. We have retained a small fleet of the iconic London Transport Routemaster buses which we use for corporate, wedding and special event hire.
