Thameside[1] is a bus company operating in East London. It is a subsidiary of Stagecoach and operates services under contract to Transport for London.

Thameside shares its headquarters with sister company East London at West Ham.


Thameside was set up to operate route 248 from 27 September 2008. In March 2009 route 372 was transferred followed in July 2009 by route 174.


Thameside operates one bus garage.

Rainham (RM)

Rainham garage operates London Buses routes 165, 174, 248, 252, 256, 287, 365 and 372.


The garage was opened in 2007 after Waterden Road was closed to allow the site to be redeveloped for the 2012 Olympic Games.[2]

In May 2008, all buses along with the trainers were moved into the new West Ham garage, meaning Rainham no longer operated any Transport for London routes. Rainham carried out all the engineering work until the new West Ham garage was completed in 2009.[3]

Transport for London routes returned to Rainham on 27 September 2008 when route 372 commenced.[2][4]

On 28 September 2013, Stagecoach London commenced operating routes 165, 252, 256 and 365.[5][6][7][8][9]
