The crew change point is now Ivybridge Tesco - where anything from a Ford Fiesta to a full size bus can sometimes be found in the car park.

Comments by David Prout
Couple of comments on the H20 page
The second photo is of MRW2 - not CV5. The number plate was previously on CV5 - as shown here - and used on LB Richmond sponsored R61 & R62. For some reason Westlink transferred these Richmond number plates to Hounslow Buses - when 3 MRL - were converted to MRW's.
The 'Stands & Routing' page shows Whitton Dean as a turning point. I have never seen a short journey on the H20 - the service is normally regulated by running direct from Tesco to Central Ave via Mogden Lane - (either with or without passengers.) and then to Hounslow
