#AYearOfBuses 276: Tottenham Hale – Waterloo

Today’s day 276 on #AYearOfBuses, and our featured bus route is one of the capital’s most famous.

The 76 starts its journey from Tottenham Hale, in North London, and heads due south through East London and the City of London, before crossing the Thames to reach Waterloo, London’s busiest rail terminus.

It started life over 100 years ago, with a daily service starting in 1912 running from Victoria to Stoke Newington. It’s been chopped and changed many, many times since then, becoming a 24 hour service along its current route in 2014 at the ripe old age of 102.
