However, the National Express buses do not have a monopoly on the Stansted - London bus routes. Stansted Citylink offer a similar style of service to National Express with two services connecting Stansted Airport and London Kings Cross / St Pancras and London Victoria.
National Express Stansted Airport Bus Stops
National Express Stansted - London Victoria Service
Is this the right airport bus service for you?
The National Express Stansted Airport - London Victoria service is the only National Express Stansted transfer service that goes south of the river and is the longest of the four National Express routes.
However, if you are going to Victoria Stansted Citylink operate a direct non-stop airport bus service between Stansted and Victoria.
The National Express coach also stops at Southwark and Waterloo, convenient for the hotels around County Hall as well as Waterloo Railway Station before terminating at Victoria.
If you are staying in the County Hall, Southwark hotel districts the Victoria - Stansted National Express service is the obvious benchmark to compare alternatives against.
Victoria is also the closest Stansted transfer to the vast Kensington hotel district with a direct Underground link to Gloucester Road, Earls Court and Kensington High Street.
The only real negative of this service is that you are more exposed to traffic congestion delays than other airport buses as the bus travels through Central London.
Avoiding The Risk Of Traffic Congestion Delays By Going To Stratford?
A lot of locals minimise the risk of delays through traffic congestion in the centre of London by just taking the bus from Stansted to Stratford.
Stratford is near the end of the motorway/freeway grade road from Stansted just before you enter the urban area of Central London.
By taking a Stratford service and walking straight onto the London Underground at Stratford you can avoid most of the probable traffic bottlenecks in the centre.

The terminus in London is at Victoria Coach Station.
