#AYearOfBuses 222: Hounslow – Uxbridge

#AYearOfBuses 222: Hounslow – Uxbridge

We’re sticking with London today on #AYearOfBuses, to take a look at a route which featured some of Britain’s earliest low floor buses.

Back in 1994, London Buses procured two batches of Wright Pathfinder bodied low floor buses.  38 were on Dennis Lance chassis and went to Centrewest (which took 14 for route 222), Metroline (14 for the 183) and London United (10 for route 120).  Thirty Scania N113CRL chassis went to East London (16 for the 101) and 14 for Leaside’s route 144. 

Today, the 222 still links Hounslow and Uxbridge, using the same route it has done since it was introduced in 1971, and is run by Metroline with a fleet of rather more mundane double decker Volvos.

Huge thanks to Mark Lyons for today’s info and photo!
