Transport for London have announced changes to buses which should greatly improve the service Kennington residents get at night from the West End.
The 159 is to become a 24 hour bus, running an extended route from Paddington to Streatham. It means we will have a direct bus link to Paddington for the first time.
A new night bus route (the N109) will be introduced to replace the N159, running from Oxford Circus to Croydon town centre, along the same route as the N159.
This means Kennington residents will have three routes to chose from to get back from the West End at night - the 3, the N109, and the 159.
The changes will take place on Saturday 28 August.
