The buses will follow the old 655 route, which was originally the electric trolley bus route that ran the same roads.
There will also be a ‘BUSking’ pop venue located in Lidl’s car park (Hanwell), which will be casting the best new music from aboard one of Redroutemaster.com’s classic London buses.
This was originally the formal site of the London Transport Hanwell Trolleybus Depot, before becoming Hanwell Bus Garage.See full route information and timetable.
