Service Changes - 26/10/13
(excluding diversions for roadworks)

Route 9 [London United - V] - Converted to "New Bus for London" operation. No change to the timetable.

LT90 made a brief appearance in service on 23/10/13 departing Aldwych at 14:20 for a single trip to Hammersmith. Unlike most route marketing promotions outside London, there were no souvenir leaflets, pens or mugs or even a chance to look at the new bus on display, plus the event was not previously advertised. Enthusiasts were invited to look retrospectively at pictures of the event on a Twitter feed, which was locked in ‘private mode’.
