#AYearOfBuses 148: Shepherd’s Bush – Camberwell Green

It’s back to London today here on #AYearOfBuses, for a relative newcomer to the scene.

The 148 came to life in 2002, running between Shepherd’s Bush Green and Camberwell Green, through the heart of central London and Westminster. It was one of a number routes introduced in the lead up to the introduction of Ken Livingstone’s infamous congestion charge.

Two years later, such was the 148’s popularity, it became a 24hour service. It was extended to White City and the newly opened behemoth, the Westfield shopping centre, later again in 2008.
