London Buses route 183 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to Transdev London.


This route began in 1947, running from Golders Green Station to Northwood Garage, via Brent Green, Kingsury, Kent, Harrow, North Harrow and Pinner. Operating from Hendon (AE), using RT-type double deckers.

The RT's where replaced by DMS's in 1975.

Route 183 swapped with route 83 in the Hendon area. The 183 via The Quadrant and The Bell and the 83 via Hendon Central.

The DMS's were replaced by Metrobuses in 1980.

Hendon was closed in 1987 and the allocation was transferred to Metroline's Harrow Weald garage and the DMS's returned and some single decks entered service. The 183 was extended from Northwood Station to Harrow Weald for Garage journeys.

Withdrawn between Pinner and Northwood on November 1987.

For short while the 183 was converted to single deck at using Dennis Dart SLFs when the route was transferred from Metroline to London Sovereign at their Edgware (EW) and Harrow (HW) garages.

But this didn't work out too well because the 183 is a very busy route and so 15 brand new low-floor Volvo B7TL 10.6m / Plaxton President double deckers were bought in to convert the route into double-deck.
