London Buses route 77 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Tooting and Waterloo, it is operated by London General.

HistoryEdit

At the time of the formation of the London Passenger Transport Board in 1933, route 77 existed as a service between Wallington and King's Cross via Carshalton, Mitcham, Tooting, Clapham Junction, Vauxhall, Lambeth Bridge, Trafalgar Square and Kingsway.

On 1 May 1957, the route was withdrawn between Euston station and King's Cross.

From 25 April 1981, it was withdrawn between Aldwych and Euston at the northern end, and Wallington and Tooting at the southern end. On 1 February 1986, route 77 was converted to one man operation. From 25 May 1991, it was curtailed between Waterloo station and Aldwych.

In 2000, the route was converted to low floor operation using Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TLs.

On 3 June 2006, the route was retained by London General.

On 1 June 2013, the route was retained by London General using Wright Eclipse Gemini bodied Volvo B7TLs and brand new Alexander Dennis Enviro 400s.

On 2 July 2016, the route was transferred from Merton (AL) to Stockwell (SW) garages and the Wright Eclipse Gemini bodied Volvo B7TLs were replaced by Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TLs.
