Transport for London has announced that Abellio (owned by the Dutch national rail operator) has retained the contract to run the C10 bus route from March 2020.

The C10 links Canada Water with Victoria via the Rotherhithe peninsula, Bermondsey, Elephant & Castle and Pimlico.

A new fleet of electric single deck buses will be introduced on the route.

TfL is in the process of converting all single deck routes to use electric vehicles.

The new contract calls for a peak requirement of 22 vehicles, up from 20 at the moment, which suggests a small frequency boost could be on the cards.

One thought on “Abellio retains C10 contract; electric buses on the way

  1. All public transport should be owned by the British public; ie, it should be nationalised. But it certainly should not be owned by foreign concerns who make a profit from the British travelling public, and inthis case, use that profit to benefit the Dutch travelling public.
