London Buses route A10 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Uxbridge and Heathrow Airport Central, it is operated by Metroline.

History Edit

The route was inaugurated on 31 August 1996 in order to link Uxbridge and Heathrow Airport, halving the time it took to travel between them. The route also serves the Stockley Park business estate. London Buslines had in fact won the original contract for the route, but was absorbed by CentreWest between this time and the start of operations. CentreWest thus inherited seven Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Dart SLFs, among the first low floor Darts in London, which sported a blue and yellow livery, with a diagonal red stripe. The buses bore the slogan "Heathrow fast...and it is".

On 30 March 1997, CentreWest was bought out by First Group and as a result their logo was added to the livery.

On 30 August 2008, the route was retained by First London using brand new Alexander Dennis Enviro 200 Darts.

On 22 June 2013, the route was included in the sale of First London's Uxbridge (UX) garage to Metroline.

On 29 August 2015, the route was retained by Metroline.
