Former Poplar Bus Garage
Former Poplar Bus Garage
Situated in Leven Road E14 0LL, this former bus garage opened as a tram depot in December 1906, with trolleybus operation taking over in June 1940. It was the last of London's tram depots to be converted for use by trolleybuses. The trolleybuses themselves were replaced by new Routemaster buses in November 1959, with these motorbuses finally disappearing from this garage in 1984. The garage was closed in November 1985 with buses transferred to nearby garages. This garage is now used as industrial premises.
