20mph Speed Limit Quiz

London Bus Route 13 Replacement Update

London Bus Route 13 Replacement Update

Transport for London recently consulted on proposals to replace Bus Route 13 which runs through Marylebone from Golders Green to The Aldwych/Drury Lane (www.tfl.gov.uk/bus/route/13/) with alterations to routes 82 and 139.
