History Edit

Route 469 commenced on 16 January 1988 to replace the withdrawn section of route 269 between Bexleyheath and Woolwich. The route was initially operated by Bexleybus operating from their Bexleyheath(BX) garage using Leyland Olympians and Daimler Fleetlines.

In 1990, the Daimler Fleetline and Leyland Olympians were replaced by Leyland Titans. In 1991, the route and garage was transferred to London Central.

In 1994, the route was diverted between Plumstead and Abbey Wood via Eynsham Drive and Harrow Manorway instead of McLeod Road replacing withdrawn section of Route 180.

In 1999, the route was rerouted between Plumstead and Abbey Wood and was rerouted between Erith and Bexleyheath via withdrawn section of B13. The Leyland Titans were replaced by low floor Marshall Capital bodied Dennis Dart SLFs at the same time.

In 2004, the route was retained by London Central. The Marshall Capital bodied Dennis Dart SLFs were replaced by Plaxton Pointer 2 bodied Dennis Dart SLFs at the same time.

In 2009, the route passed to Selkent operating from their Plumstead (PD) garage with Optare Versas introduced. At the same time, the route was withdrawn between Erith and Bexleyheath - this section replaced by Route 99.

In 2012, the Optare Versas were replaced by Alexander Dennis Enviro 200 Darts from route 62.

In 2016, the route passed to Arriva London operating from their Dartford (DT) garage.
