#AYearOfBuses 214: Highgate Village – Liverpool Street

#AYearOfBuses 214: Highgate Village – Liverpool Street

Today’s winner on #AYearOfBuses is one of London’s next routes to go fully-electric.

London’s route 214 began life in 1961 as a replacement for trolleybus route 615, running between Moorgate and Parliament Hill Fields via City Road, Angel and King’s Cross. It’s one of central London’s relatively rare single-deck routes, having been run with varying types – including Leyland Nationals – since 1989.

The next chapter in the 214s’ history starts later this month – it’ll pass from long-term incumbent Metroline to London General, who will introduce a fleet of Alexander Dennis Enviro200EV-bodied BYD D9URs full-electric buses.
