Night routes (N-prefixed)Edit

Night bus routes are often related to the day numerical equivalent, normally running the same route but with an extension at either end of the service. This is normally to provide a night service to destinations served by tube or train during the day.

However, in a few cases, a few services have a route number that has no connection to its daytime equivalent, such as the N5, which operates in a different part of London to day route 5.

There are also 24-hour routes, which are listed in the day routes above, shaded blue.
