London buses: Full Christmas timetable as services affected

Ahead of the festive period, Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed the full Christmas timetable and change of services, including London buses.

Closures and service changes will start from December 22 meaning you still have time to plan if you are travelling in London during Christmas time. 

On the TfL website, they share: “Between Friday 22 December 2023 and Tuesday 2 January 2024, planned work, closures and service changes may affect your journey.”

You can find out more information via the TfL website.
