Route 459 launches fully between Heathrow, Colnbrook and Iver

1 month ago Tue 21st Jan 2020

Great news for workers at Heathrow and holiday makers as route 459 officially launches its full route and timetable from Monday 3 February.

Buses will run between Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 and Colnbrook, Langley and Iver.

The initial trial saw an electric bus used and no fares charged! As the route is now launching in full, the buses will be 'normal' Euro VI diesel buses which have lower emissions than a modern car. There will also be full fares along the whole route. See below for details.
