DLR replacement buses

We are staying at the Ramada Docklands over the weekend of 12-13 July & as luck would have it the DLR has engineering work taking place, so a replacement bus is running from Beckton to Canning Town.

Has anyone any experience of these, please? - Do they run to the timetable or are they less frequent? Slightly dubious about having wait for a bus at Canning Town on Saturday night!

Canning Town bus station will have loads of folk about, I wouldn't worry about that. If you really don't want to use the replacement bus, you can walk across the footbridge in front of your hotel to Pontoon Dock on the Woolwich branch of the DLR, which will be running normally.

Canning Town is a major bus interchange with CCTV and supervisory staff on duty round the clock, and there will be additional staff supervising the replacement bus services.
