Transport for London

Greenwich Waterfront Transit

O2 Dome at Greenwich The Greenwich Waterfront Transit (GWT) is a 24-hour transit service that will connect you with the Tube, bus services, National Rail, and the DLR.

To make your journey as quick as possible, we plan to run much of the route on purpose built bus lanes (a bus way). This is why we call it a 'bus way transit service'.

The route

Due to start in autumn 2011, services will connect with the East London Transit serving Ilford, Barking and Dagenham Dock via the proposed Thames Gateway Bridge.

Together these services form the Thames Gateway Transit (TGT).

Services and fares

You won't have to wait more than six minutes for a bus during the day (Monday to Saturday), 10 minutes in the evenings and on Sundays, and 30 minutes at night. 

The fare will be the same as on any other London bus and valid for holders of Oyster Card and all other standard passes. 


In 2005 we carried out a consultation on the TGT and we've been working on the details of the route: how it will look, where the stops will be and what the impact on traffic would be.

A public consultation ran from 12 November 2007 until 11 January 2008. This included sending out a brochure to key stakeholders - around 24,000 addresses - holding three public events and meeting residents of the Royal Arsenal and Goldfinch Road areas. Find out more in Consultation.
