The easyJet founder set up easyBus as a no-frills minibus operator in 2003 and its network has expanded and contracted several times.

From Monday 7 July a new easyBus service will link Waterloo with Gatwick Airport.

Buses will run two or three times an hour with a journey time of 70 minutes from a bus stop outside Elizabeth House in York Road.

easyBus has bought a new fleet of 14-seater Ford Transit minibuses for its new Old Street to Stansted and Waterloo to Gatwick services.

The Waterloo to Gatwick will operate daily between 3am/4am and midnight.

Although the company advertises its lowest fare as 2, tickets for journeys in July and August range in price between 1 and 6.99 each way.
