#AYearOfBuses 137: Marble Arch – Streatham Hill
We’re sticking with London today on #AYearOfBuses!
The 137 is one of the capital’s oldest and most famous bus routes, cutting a swathe through central London from Marble Arch (until recently it went as far as Oxford Circus) to Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge, Sloan Square, Chelsea Bridge, Battersea Park, Clapham Common and Streatham Hill.
It ran with Routemasters for an incredible 40 years before they were retired in favour of low-floor Wright Pulsar Gemini-bodied DAFs in 2004 – the RMs had been in operation since 1964.
