Amazon enters London bus market as it starts running four routes

London Bus routes run by Amazon

Amazon has entered the London bus market, providing services for employees and contractors, MyLondon reported.

The e-commerce giant has four routes – which are run by contracted operators – to connect London to the outskirts where most of its warehouses are located.

Unlike TfL buses that are red, have the logo and accept Oyster card payment, Amazon buses can be of any shape and colour and do not accept the TfL pass.

At the price of £4 for a return ticket, Amazon bus routes run every few minutes between 5am and 7am, resuming service 12 hours later – allowing employees enough time to start and finish their shifts.
