London Buses route 190 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. The service is currently contracted to Metroline.

History

Route 190, began in February 1991 to replace the withdrawn section of route 290 between Richmond "Bus Station" and West Brompton "Empress State Building" (Mondays to Saturdays).

Before being operated by Metroline, it was operated by London United (now Transdev), at their Stamford Brook garage, using single-deck Leyland Lynx. Dennis Darts replaced the Leyland Lynxs in 1994.

In 1995, a Sunday service was gained with double deck operation was introduced from Southall's London Buslines.

The whole allocation was transferred to Armchair, at their Brentford Garage, in late 1996 using Dennis Dart/Plaxton Pointer 2s in the smart orange and white livery.

Metroline bought Armchair in 2005, initially under a different name until 2007 and now most of the buses have been painted in Metroline's red and blue livery. Recently Alexander ALX 400s and Plaxton Presidents have been brought for the route.
