London Buses route 110 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to Transdev London.

HistoryEdit

This route dates back to 1950.

The route was converted from crew-operated double deckers to one-person-operated MBS-class AEC Merlin operation in 1968. These were replaced by the shorter SMS-class AEC Swift in 1970. These unreliable vehicles were replaced by LS-class Leyland Nationals in 1976. The route was transferred from Hounslow to Fulwell garage in 1978, and an upper deck returned to the route in March 1979, in the shape of M-class MCW Metrobuses, these were the first of the production batch to enter service in London, and also worked on route 270. The route plodded on until April 1987, when after being placed out the tender the contract was awarded to London Country South West at Addlestone Garage. Seven second-hand Leyland Atlanteans were purchased from GM Buses to cover the peak requirement of 5. But the buses were not as reliable as had been hoped, and from 1988 they were replaced by brand new vehicles, firstly a temporary allocation of Dennis Dominators and then by massive Volvo Citybuses, with 88-seat East Lancs bodywork. The contract ran for three years, until April 1990 when Westlink took over with more conventional 49-seat single deck Optare Deltas. Following the take over of Westlink by London United, the route moved back to its spiritual home at Hounslow in 1998 and step entrance Dennis Darts released by newer buses elsewhere moved in. For about a year from March 2002, the route was worked by Optare Excels, before receiving brand new low-floor TransBus Darts.

Today (2008) the route remains at Hounslow, worked by TransBus Darts.
