Commuting by train or driving and parking into Central London?

Driving into London can take longer and expensive as you have to tackle your way through the traffic jam, pay the Congestion charge and pay a fortune for parking. If your going into Central London for the purpose of attending appointments, Job interview, tourism…etc

The fuel would cost you between £5.00 or £15.00 (Source Google Maps) to drive inside the M25 motorway and into Central London, depending where you travel from.

Website Review: London Bus Routes

Screenshot of the Front page of London Bus Routes website
London Bus Routes is a website that features timetables for bus routes that serves in London.  Here you can find a timetable for your local bus route in London. The website pages were originally designed for Microsoft Internet Explorer, but it gives a retro feel that your visiting a website with less graphics due to slow dial up technology over a decade ago. Another positive thought that the pages on this website load lot quicker under a broadband connection. This website is maintained by Robert Munster in which he works as a bus schedulecompiler for one of the major London Bus operators. His website is not affiliated to Transport for London or any of the bus operators.
