London Buses route 194 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to Arriva London.

The route is operated by double-deckers, and mostly uses Alexander ALX400 buses, to be replaced by Volvo B7TL buses.


The original service 82, provided by the London General Omnibus Company, operated between West Wickham and Lower Sydenham and was renumbered 194 at the time of nationalisation.

For most of the time that route 194 was operated by London Transport it ran between Croydon Airport and Forest Hill. The part of the route between Elmers End Green and Penge Pawleyne Arms was via Elmers End Road (passing Elmers End Garage which operated this route at that time)and Croydon Road. In 1989 a temporary diversion was established via Beckenham War memorial while the bridge adjacent to Elmers End railway station was rebuilt, however it was never restored. [1]

The 194 has been cut back since Arriva took over the service from Stagecoach in London (now Selkent). TfL had cut of some of the route at the Sydenham end, which used to travel back to Forest Hill.
