The Kingston Hoppa's: Series in Focus





SDE5 YX08MFN seen on the K1 at Surbiton Station
JPT here, trying out a new "fad" called "Series in Focus". It's when we take a series of routes, and focus on them! Here is a trial post. This week, were focusing on the 'Hoppa' routes of Kingston.
The Hoppa routes of Kingston, (K1,2,3,4,5,formerly 6,7,8,9&10) are/were a series of routes dedicated to linking the estates and towns around Kingston-upon-Thames and neighbouring boroughs to Central Kingston Town itself.
The reason I chose to do the K routes as the first post, is because I use at least one of these routes every day!
These routes have been operated by London United, Centra, Mitcham Belle, Abellio, Kingston Bus and Quality Line. here are a few photos of these routes, in number order.
