The latest round of London bus tenders have been announced, with Metroline making three route gains. The three services were all gained from Arriva London North, with the changeover taking effect from June 9, 2018.

The 268 will use seven existing diesel single-deckers. These are three Euro 4 vehicles built in 2009 and a further four Euro 5 buses built in 2010.

The H2 has a Peak Vehicle Requirement (PVR) of three and will utilise new Euro 6 diesel single-deckers, as will the H3/631 (PVR two).

Metroline will also retain its existing 143D (PVR one, 2010 Euro 5 double-decker) and 643 (PVR two, 2010 Euro 5 double-decker) routes, with the contract renewed on June 30, 2018.
