DSCF4866 HCT Group bus on service 812 - 24 Aug 2016
Wednesday 24 August 2016 (1548) – An HCT Group bus seen in Southgate Road, London N1 operating service 812. I think it is a Volkswagen with Bluebird Tucana bodywork built in Scarborough like the one in this photograph www.ipernity.com/doc/davidslater-spoddendale/42792900/in/album/914220 (it might even be the same one). It is quite rare for a bus route in Greater London not to be controlled by Transport for London but service 812, which operates under a special London service permit, is subsidised by Islington Borough Council rather than TfL. The buses used on the route sport a yellow livery rather than the usual London red and the fare structure is totally separate from that of TfL - TfL travelcards, passes and Oyster cards are not accepted.
