History Edit

Route N155 commenced on 18 August 1995 between Trafalgar Square and Sutton Station via Westminster Bridge - Kennington Road - Oval - Stockwell - Clapham - Balham - Tooting - Colliers Wood - South Wimbledon - Morden - St Helier. The route was initially operated by London General from their Sutton (A) and Stockwell (SW) garages using MCW Metrobuses. The route was introduced to replace withdrawn route N87 between Trafalgar Square and Tooting.

On 28 June 1996, the route was rerouted between Westminster Bridge Road and Oval via Elephant & Castle.

On 11 December 1997, the Sutton terminal was changed to Sutton Court Road and Volvo Olympians were introduced.

On 28 May 1999, the route was extended from Trafalgar Square to Aldwych, the Sutton terminal was reverted to Station and Stockwell (SW) allocation was transferred to Sutton (A) garage. The route was converted to full Volvo Olympian operation.

On 30 April 2000, part of the allocation was transferred to Stockwell (SW) garage and a low floor Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TL.

On 12 December 2003, the route was withdrawn between Morden and Sutton, the St Helier to Sutton section was covered by rerouting of Route N44. At the same time, the route was converted to full low floor operation using East Lancs Myllennium Vyking and Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TLs.

On 29 April 2005, the Stockwell (SW) allocation was transferred to Sutton (A) garage and was converted to full East Lancs Myllennium Vyking bodied Volvo B7TL operation.

In 2009, the Lancs Myllennium Vyking bodied Volvo B7TLs were replaced by Optare Olympus bodied Dennis Tridents.
