KPMG Thames Clippers is delighted to announce it has won the five-year contract to run a River Bus service from Putney to Blackfriars, commencing on 2 April 2013.
The contract, which has been awarded by TfL, will see KPMG Thames Clippers increasing the daily services from Putney to Blackfriars with a journey time of just 39 minutes.
The new route means Thames Clippers will now additionally stop at Putney, Wandsworth Riverside, Chelsea Harbour and Cadogan Pier, a total of 19 piers across the capital.
