London Buses route 140 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. The service is currently contracted to Metroline.

HistoryEdit

Route 140 from when it started was a totally different route from what it is now. Started from Hayes Bourne Avenue followed what U4 is now to Hayes, followed its current route to Harrow, then followed the current route 114 via Kenton and Queensbury and finished at Mill Hill Broadway.

On 4 May 1955 the section between Hayes Bourne Avenue & Hayes Station and extended via Harlington High Street and Harlington Corner and terminate at London Airport Central (now Heathrow). In 1967 route 140 was extended from Mill Hill Broadway to Page Street (further extended to Mill Hill East in 1968) for school journeys. In 1983 the Harrow & Mill Hill section was withdrawn and replaced by route 114 and two years later 140 was rerouted via the current 340 to Edgware Station. The section between Edgware and Harrow Weald was withdrawn and replaced by route 340 in 1987.

In 2000, Heathrow needed more transport facilities in the night and so 140 gained night service N140. The 'N' prefix has now been dropped. Route 640 provides the school service for route 140 between South Harrow and Harrow Weald.
