London Buses route 206 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to Metroline.


This bus route started on September 22, 1990 to provide links between Kilburn, Willesden and Harlesden. The route started from St. Raphael's Estate via todays route 206 except instead of going directly to Willesden Community Hospital it took a double run to Willesden Bus Garage Forecourt and then back. In 1995, the route's allocation was moved from Willesden (AC) to North Wembley (NW). Route 206 also had no Sunday service until 1996. The bus was also re-routed between Kilburn and Queen's Park now running via Brondesbury Road.

In 1997, the double run at Willesden Bus Garage was withdrawn and the route finally became what it is today. The route 206 has always been a low floor bus and in 2002 it was converted into a Dennis Dart SLF / Plaxton Pointer 2. In 2007, the route was converted into a MAN 12.240 10.2m / MCV Evolution along with other routes like 190 and 232. In June 2009, the night service between St Raphael's Estate and Brent Park was withdrawn on routes 206 and 232 temporarily however, it was back to normal service on August 2010. The route 206 has always been operated by Metroline.
