London's West End Buses in the 1980s


London's West End Buses looks at London's buses in and around the West End during the 1980s - a time of great change. Bus routes were put out to competitive tendering, garages closed, the Routemaster started its slow decline, Aldenham Bus Overhaul Works closed, and by 1989 the once mighty London Transport itself was being divided into separate business units, ready for eventual privatisation. This was the decade when Grey-Green won the first tendered Central London route from London Buses, and grey-and-green buses could soon be seen passing the Houses of Parliament; green or blue buses started crossing Waterloo Bridge, and minibuses appeared on new route C1 in Victoria. London sightseeing was also changing, with operators large and small operating anything from Routemasters and DMS's to the odd Bristol VRT.
