Hertfordshire bus route 84 is a commercial bus service in Hertfordshire and London. Running between St Albans and New Barnet station it is operated by Metroline.

History

AEC Swift in High Barnet in July 1980

Route 84 commenced operating on 3 August 1912[1] between St Albans and Golders Green. It was operated by the London General Omnibus Company as a feeder service to the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway which at that time terminated at Golders Green.[2]

Route 84 used to reach further into London: in 1936 it ran from St Albans to Golders Green, albeit omitting Potters Bar itself by running via New Road. As a wartime economy, from May 1940, route 84 was withdrawn south of Whetstone, being diverted to Arnos Grove station instead. In August 1969 it was cut back to Barnet and diverted to New Barnet station. Operation of the route passed from London Regional Transport to London Country Bus Services in 1982.[3]

From 2 January 2012, the route no longer accepted Transport for London tickets.[4]
