London Buses route 328 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Golders Green station and Chelsea World's End, it is operated by Tower Transit.

History

Upon being re-tendered and retained by First London from 5 June 2004, the route was converted to double deck operation with Wright Eclipse Gemini bodied Volvo B7TLs.[1]

Early enthusiasm for hybrid vehicle technology, in which all or part of the motive power is provided by electricity rather than directly by the engine, saw a number of small batches of experimental vehicles ordered. One of the routes selected for trials was route 328,[2] and it gained five Wright Gemini 2 HEVs. Plaxton President bodied Dennis Trident 2s formed part of the official allocation to route 328.

When next re-tendered, the route was retained by First London with a new contract commencing on 30 April 2011.[3]

On 22 June 2013, route 328 was included in the sale of First London's Atlas Road garage to Tower Transit.[4][5][6]
