The bus leaves New Malden via the old route 352 to Eastfields, continuing along Meopham Road, Rowan Road, Wide Way, South Lodge Avenue and Carisbrooke Road, ending in Westmoreland Way.

Buses will depart from Pollards Hill via Yorkshire Road and South Lodge Avenue each 15 mins. on weekdays and every 30mins. at weekends.

Local campaigners were ecstatic as Merton Mayor Peter McCabe launched the new bus and helped local residents aboard for the first journey.
