London Buses route 88 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to London General.


Route 88 ran from Acton Green to Mitcham (Mon-Fri)/St Helier (Mon-Fri peaks/Sat)/Belmont (Sundays) in 1950. It was extended further to Banstead Hospital (Sundays pm journeys) in 1961, It was withdrawn from Belmont in 1974 and extended Sunday journeys to Merton Garage in 1981.

Route 88 was rerouted to Turnham Green in 1988. It was withdrawn between Turnham Green & Marble Arch in 1990 and replaced by new route 94. It was withdrawn between Mitcham & Clapham Common in late 1990 and Oxford Circus & Marble Arch in 1992.

Because of stand space at Oxford Circus, the route was extended to Camden Town via the withdrawn route 135 in 2000.

The route has also gained a night service.
