Travel: Silent night, lonely flight: Correction

Better bus service

OUR feature on Christmas Day travel (18 December, Independent Traveller) claimed that only two bus services operated in London on 25 December. In fact, there were four: our apologies for omitting route 700 serving Orpington and district, and route 715 from Shepherd's Bush Green to central London.

The 715 is run by Routemaster Travel (it operates only the classic London Routemaster bus). The company's operations director, Colin Tassell, says that it did good business last Saturday, with 549 single passenger journeys. Most of the services ran to Russell Square, but there were four trips to St Paul's Cathedral, to coincide with its services. Routemaster Travel is on 081-868 7575.
