Answered By:

TfL has no plans to run a bus service on Christmas Day. Demand for buses on Christmas Day would be low and distributed very thinly across London, so it is unlikely that the cost of providing a limited service would be justified. TfL will shortly be publishing a guide to public transport services available.
