#AYearOfBuses 6: Willesden – Aldwych
It’s our first foray into London on #AYearOfBuses – today we’re heading right into the heart of the capital for Metroline’s route 6.
We’re going from one of Britain’s longest bus routes yesterday, to one of London’s shortest today. TfL’s route 6 is run by Metroline and runs from Willesden Bus Garage just northwest of Central London, along Edgware Road past the Marble Arch, before turning right into the heart of tourist territory – passing Hyde Park Corner, Green Park, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square, before coming to a finish at Aldwych.
Despite its short length, the 6 requires up to 30 buses to cover a distance of just 6 miles – running every 7-10 mins and crossing Central London East-West, it’s fairly easy to see why there’s an insanely high demand for vehicles.
