For 25 years, London's leading River Bus service has been transporting commuters and sightseers along the iconic Thames. To mark this silver anniversary milestone, we are giving away a whopping 600 free River Roamer tickets in 24 hours!

That's 25 tickets awarded every hour on Friday 24 May!

Our high-speed River Bus service started on 24 May 1999. Captained by Sean, our CEO, Storm Clipper ferried passengers from Greenland (Surrey Quays) Pier to Savoy Pier (now Woods Quay). 

Over 25 trailblazing years, we have grown from a single cross-river ferry to a fleet of 21 vessels, including three new hybrid catamarans. Looking ahead, the service is committed to reducing emissions without compromising performance.
