Route history

One of the shortest-running RF routes on record, introduced to run between the peaks only Monday to Saturday, but lasting only 6 months before withdrawal.  The route was provided in response to protests over the withdrawal of double-deck route 151 over this section (previosly covered by the 213), but was not a success.


Details of the history of the route are given here.
