The bus is working for Metrobus on Route 409, from East Grinstead to West Croydon. This route has a long and interesting history. It began in the 1920s as an East Surrey route, numbered 9, and running from West Croydon to Uckfield. On takeover by London Transport in 1933, it was renumbered S9, as all Southern area services were prefixed S. Then when 400 was added to all Southern area routes, it became 409. During WW2, the southern terminus was cut back to Forest Row, where it remained for very many years. For all of this time, its route between Caterham and Croydon was via Stoats Nest Road and Purley. About 1965, the route received the RML (long Routemaster) class of buses and retained these until the 1980s brought one-man operation. About 1998 the route between Caterham and Croydon was altered to be via Selsdon, and the southern terminus was cut back further to East Grinstead, the old Caterham to Croydon part becoming self-contained with red buses.
