#AYearOfBuses 257: Stratford – Walthamstow Central

London bus 257

We’re taking another trip to London today on #AYearOfBuses!

Stagecoach London’s route 257 runs between Stratford, Leytonstone, Whipps Cross, Leyton and Walthamstow Central, with a fleet of ADL Enviro400s in various configurations from their Leyton garage.

It’s of particular note for the number of times it’s changed hands, and back into former hands in its relatively short lifetime. Since 1988, the 257 has been operated by East London, Capital Citybus, First London, Stagecoach East London, on to East London with the sale to the Australian Bank Macquarie, then to Go Ahead, and more recently, back to Stagecoach – from a different garage – once more.
