Five STL-type[clarification needed] buses with open tops were ordered by Charles Pickup for route 37 on weekdays, now running between Peckham and Richmond.[1] It was later extended to Hounslow, and during World War I was operated with naptha powered vehicles.[2]

In April 1997 the route gained a night bus variant, route N37. It was the 50th night bus route to begin operation in London.[3]
