London bus network
Most bus services in London are run by private operators who have been awarded a contract by TfL. All applicants have to tender for any service they would like to run.

A small number of bus services in London are run commercially and are not part of TfL's competitive tender process. Instead, operators interested in running this type of service need to apply for a London Service Permit.
