London Buses route 167 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to Docklands Buses.


The 167 route was first introduced following the Second World War and operated from Loughton bus garage by London Buses. On 24 May 1986 the operation of the 167 passed to Eastern National under the London Buses tendering regime. In 1990 the 167 was transferred to the Thamesway operation. The contract was lost to Grey Green in 1992, who then became part of the Cowie Group. Later, Grey Green was brought under the Arriva London banner. In 2002 Docklands Buses won the contract from Arriva.


RTs were first used on this route but when the route was converted to single deck, AEC Merlins were used. After eight years it was converted to double deck again using Daimler DMS. In early 1980s, Leyland Titans and Leyland Nationals were in use. When Eastern National took over after the closure of Loughton garage, Leyland Nationals were put in use as now the buses had to be single deck due to the permanent diversion via Loughton Way and the low bridge in Roding Road where the Central Line crosses over it. When Grey Green took over, a variety of bus types where used, including DAF/Ikarus and later Alexander ALX200s. The contract then passed to Docklands Buses using Dennis Dart/Caetano Nimbuses. These have now been replaced with MCV Evolutions on Alexander Dennis Enviro 200 Dart chassis.
