July 1987 Update
16 pages
Text from the cover:
This update should be read in conjunction with the Night Owls Guide dated March 1987. From Friday night 10th July a number of all-night bus routes which run to Waterloo will be diverted to serve Victoria thus giving better links with other night buses and the hourly all-night train service to Gatwick Airport via Clapham Junction and East Croydon.
We’re introducing new timetables for Night Buses N14, N68, N78, N88, N89 and N94. Please see inside this leaflet for full details. Also, it has been necessary to change the times of some buses on many other routes. A few will run just one or two minutes later, whilst other changes are noted in the following pages.
It is planned to make some changes to Night Buses N2, N11, N14, N18, N50, N59, N90, N92, N93 and N97 from late September.
Full details will be available nearer the time.
