The 7:40PM 446 bus: lost somewhere?
Last week I went from Stanwell Moor to London four times, and four times I tried to come back home with the 446 Abellio bus due to leave Heathrow's Terminal 5 at 19:40. Twice the bus did not show up, leaving a bunch of foreign tourists and myself stranded. Luckily, the drivers of the RailAir 71 bus, which stops in Stanwell Moor Road, outside the village, accepted my ticket (and those of a family...Read more
After bus 557, will Stanwell Moor lose the 441 as well?

If Stanwell Moor loses bus 557, will the village die?
Stanwell Moor used to have the 441 bus as its main connection with Heathrow's Terminal 5. In the past two years the village lost the 441, which was replaced by the 557 bus, with one positive change (no ticket between Stanwell Moor and T5) and one serious limitation: no buses from Stanwell Moor to T5 after 6:44PM, and - more importantly for citizens returning home from Heathrow - no service from...Read more
