From Saturday 30 June 2018, route 277 will no longer serve stops between Dalston and Highbury Corner. Except at night, it will operate between Crossharbour and Dalston Junction. This is because improvements at Highbury Corner mean that route 277 will no longer be able to terminate there.

From the same date we are extending route 277 at night from Highbury Corner to and from Islington, Angel, along Upper Street. It will be known as route N277 and run between Crossharbour and Islington, Angel along the full current route of route 277.

If you currently use route 277 between Dalston and Highbury Corner you will instead be able to use route 30 during the day and new route N277 during the night.

We’re adding some additional journeys to route 30 in peak hours from 23 June 2018.

On behalf of Hackney Liberal Democrats, Dave Raval said,

“Bad news about the 277 bus. Mayor Khan, who’s already cut London buses by 7%, is now cutting part of the 277, so it will no longer link Dalston with Highbury. That route will only be served now by the 30, which is a long and unreliable route. The claimed reason is that the 277 no longer has space to terminate at Highbury, but in that case it would have made more sense to extend the 263 to Dalston, surely? Instead, more people are likely to use the (crowded) Overground route here instead. “
