MBNA Thames Clippers are the leading River Bus service on the River Thames running a 20 minute frequency between key London piers including North Greenwich for The O2, Greenwich, Canary Wharf, Tower, London Bridge, Embankment and London Eye for Waterloo, as well as several residential piers.

In April 2013 the company won the five-year contract to run a River Bus service from Putney to Blackfriars. The new route means MBNA Thames Clippers now additionally stop at Putney, Wandsworth Riverside, Chelsea Harbour and Cadogan Pier, a total of 21 piers across the capital.

Co-founded in 1999 by Sean Collins (Managing Director) and Alan Woods (former Chairman), the company began with one boat servicing 80 passengers a day between Greenland and Savoy piers. More than ten years on numbers have significantly risen to over three million a year.

In 2006 AEG, owners and operators of The O2, acquired the majority stake in the company and since then the fleet has substantially grown to 15 vessels. River Bus Express for The O2 is an additional fast direct service between London Eye and London Bridge to The O2 at North Greenwich on arena event nights.

  • Easy way into central London if you have the time to spare.. one certainly feels relaxed on arrival. Avoid peak rush hours
  • More expensive to travel from Greenwich to the South Bank than by tube, but much more fun too. Quick and hassle free. Good views of many of the major sites. Only criticism would be no staff enforcing no standing rules meant view was obscured at times from the outside deck.
