Arriving every 7 to 10 minutes, the CityMapper route planner shows it can take a lot of minutes to get from Fulham Town Hall to Primrose Street during rush hour.
Instead, take the London Underground will save you a little time.
With its current route slow enough, London buses are currently facing delays as the crane operates near Broadway Fulham Station and must now stop at Chelsea World’s End.
Its journey begins at Fulham Broadway before commencing to a major stop at Victoria Bus Station.
The bus then heads to Westminster Abbey before crossing the West End.
The route passes through London’s Covent Garden hotspot and heads to St Paul’s Cathedral before arriving at a stop at Liverpool Street.
Traveling at 6.5 km/h, the 14th gear is only slightly slower.
Recently, it became even slower as TfL cut the frequency of the service down to every 10 minutes.
Buses are expected to take an hour and a half to make the short 8-mile journey during rush hour.
Despite pleas from Chelsea and Fulham MPs, Greg Hands and councilors Kensington and Chelsea, TfL refused to take the bus more frequently, citing cost savings.
