This bus route terminates here – it’s all change for 211 and 77 services

Changes are being introduced to two bus routes operating in Lambeth and Wandsworth to improve access to busy leisure destinations, according to Transport for London (TfL).

From tomorrow, there will be changes to bus routes 211 and 77 to improve travel links to and from Battersea Power Station and to accommodate plans by Lambeth council to pedestrianise Concert Hall Approach in the Waterloo area.

Route 211 will be re-routed at Sloane Square, going to and from the popular Battersea Power Station via Chelsea Bridge Road, Chelsea Bridge and Queenstown Road, creating a number of new links to other services, theoretically making journeys easier for customers.

Route 211 will no longer operate between Sloane Square and Waterloo railway station via Victoria coach station, Victoria railway station, Westminster or St Thomas’ Hospital.

Customers travelling between Sloane Square and Waterloo can change at the same bus stop for route 11 at Sloane Square/Lower Sloane Street (stop M) towards Waterloo, and at Sloane Square station (stop K) for journeys towards Hammersmith

Route 11 will still continue to serve the same stops between Sloane Square and Waterloo as the 211 once the changes take place.

There will be no change to the frequency of route 211, with buses continuing to operate every 10 minutes during the daytime Monday to Saturday and every 15 minutes every evening and all day on Sunday. 

Route 77 will be re-routed between St Thomas’ Hospital and Waterloo station, with buses terminating by the entrance of Waterloo station (stop C) on Cab Road via Station Approach Road from the County Hall roundabout.

This will enable Lambeth council to make changes to Concert Hall Approach to support the South Bank Spine Route improvement programme.

The bus stops for route 77 in both directions will move to the entrance of Waterloo railway station, which should make it easier for customers to interchange with rail services at one of London’s busiest stations.

The frequency of route 77 will stay the same, with buses continuing to operate every 10 minutes during the daytime Monday to Saturday, and every 12 minutes every evening and on Sunday.

Geoff Hobbs, TfL’s director of public transport service planning, said: “We continually work to improve and adapt our bus network according to customer demand, offering affordable and sustainable public transport options where possible.

“Working with local councils and partners, we constantly monitor and review our bus network to accommodate popular tourist and leisure destinations and any new developments within the community, making it more convenient and accessible for Londoners and tourists alike.”
