ROUTE 430 – CHRISTMAS DAY – FREE BUS SERVICE
On Christmas Day 2017 a free bus service will run on route 430 between Roehampton and Putney Bridge. It will be staffed by volunteers using a 1950s vintage RT bus. The operators are doing it for fun, goodwill and to promote vintage bus hire.
The service will run hourly between about 09:00 and 16:00. It will follow the normal 430 route from Putney Bridge to Roehampton Village, but will then serve Alton Road and Bessborough Road as well as Danebury Avenue.
So if you’re visiting a pub on Christmas Day, going to church, visiting friends and family, or just want to take the children out for a ride, check out the timetable! For Roehampton Hospital the route stops quite near the back entrance, a short walk along Crestway to Dover House Road.
This is not a Transport for London or London General service. However the bus is run professionally under an operator’s licence, meeting current safety regulations. The bus is not fully accessible, but there will be a conductor to help passengers.
If you have any questions about our Christmas Day service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
