RATP Dev Transit London is one of the largest bus operators in London, running 1,250 buses and carrying some 250 million customers every year safely to their destinations.
We run 112 routes in and around the capital, mostly under contract to Transport for London (TfL), the capital’s transport authority.
TfL has ‘ownership’ of all bus routes in London and awards them to bus operators through a competitive tendering process, usually for a term of seven years.
We run our bus routes from 10 operational bases. Many of our bus routes are 24-hour operations and most run seven days a week.
As well as daily commuters, our diverse customer base includes shoppers, tourists, visitors to London and people travelling to hospital appointments.
Our uniformed, knowledgeable drivers are trained to recognise the special travel requirements of all customers, and this can include wheelchair users, the partially sighted, the hard of hearing and visitors to the capital who do not speak English and are lost.
We are highly supportive of ‘green’ transport solutions and look for ways of reducing the impact our operations have on the environment. For example, by mid-2022 more than 25% of our entire fleet will be clean (fully electric)
