London Buses route 105 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to First London.


Today's route 105 commenced operation on 4 March 1936 as a daily route between Shepherd's Bush and Hounslow Heath (The Hussar) via Wood Lane, East Acton, Western Avenue, Park Royal, Perivale, Greenford, Southall, Heston and Hounslow Central. It replaced route 93 between Shepherds Bush and Southall as well as route 120 between Southall and Hounslow.

Then the Southall to Hayes section was replaced by route 195. The route 195 was withdrawn and route 105 replaced it. It was then extended to Charville Lane Estate where route 195 terminates today.

Route 105 was curtailed to Southall Town and route 195 was reintroduced to replace it. The route was extended to Heathrow Airport terminal 1, 2 and 3 to replace route 83, then the route was extended to Terminal 4, it was withdrawn in 1989. Route 95 replaced the Shepherd's Bush Green to Southall section, route 105 was rerouted to be terminated at Greenford.

Route 105 also had allocation problems; initially the route was allocated to Centrewest at their Alperton (ON) garage using Metrobuses and midibuses. The allocation was withdrawn and was moved to Southall using green Dennis Dart SLF / Plaxton Pointer. Southall garage was closed and the allocation moved back to Alperton.

When Centrewest was bought by First London the route was transferred within the First group to First London Buslines using yellow with brown skirt Dennis Dart SLF / Marshall Capital's (DMLs), then First London Buslines closed and the allocation was moved to First London's Greenford garage, still using the DMLs.

Now Greenford has got new Dennis Trident Plaxton Presidents for the route, releasing the DMLs for route E3 and route E7. Greenford gave the DMLs to Uxbridge (UX) for route U3.

Route 105 was converted into a 24 hour service.
