Jo Hunt from Camden, Mary Rees from Peckham and Linda Smither from Forest Hill began their challenge in March 2009 - making the most of their free Freedom Pass.

Linda Mary and I stepped onto our last bus... The X68 runs from Southampton Row to West Croydon, only in the morning and in the afternoon and X of course stands for 'Express'.

Known as the 'Ladies Who Bus', they photographed and blogged about every exciting landmark encountered on each journey, and were delighted by everyday sights most of us take for granted.

On Monday their adventure came to an end when they caught the X68 bus which took them to West Croydon.
