A free council bus service for residents on the Isle of Dogs and South Poplar will start running from Chrisp Street Market to the ASDA shopping centre on September 28.

The circular route will initially run for two years with buses travelling in both directions around the Isle of Dogs, from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.

It will stop at places such as Castilla Square, Cubitt Town Library, Island Gardens and Station, ASDA, Docklands Medical Centre, Tiller Road Baths, Mellish Street Square, Limehouse Police Station, and Chrisp Street Market.

On main roads it will only stop at normal bus stops marked with the route number IOD 1 or IOD 2. But when travelling on residential side roads, people will be able to stop the bus by putting out a hand and holding out their permit. The bus will then stop at the safest, nearest point. There will also be designated bus bays at Chrisp Street Market and ASDA bus station.
