// Buses in Kensington and Chelsea

Using buses in Kensington and Chelsea is easy as there are so many routes that travel through the borough – both ones that are completely contained in the area, and also those that travel through it in some way. Here are some of the most usual bus routes, with a handful of their destinations in either direction of the route:

Unlike parts of central London, you do not generally have to buy a ticket before you board the bus. (If there’s a little ticket machine next to the stop, that means you do.) You can simply pay the driver onboard – a single fare is £2.40 (2013). However, it is advisable to purchase an Oyster card if you’re planning on doing quite a bit of travelling; with an Oyster, a single fare on the bus is only £1.40.

Once again, the advice given on Transport for London‘s website is invaluable for route planning advice – be sure to check it out, if you can, before you set off on your bus travels!
