A new bus for London



I find this very exciting and look forward to when the new Routemaster hits London’s streets. I’ve never been a fan of the bendy bus and believe that the public transport of a city has a huge impact on the wellbeing of its citizens.

I like this winning design. I love the return of the open hop on hop off back, the use of wood and leather and the styling – it is a nod to the original but also fresh and modern.

While much of the design may get watered down because of cost and practicality, this is definitely a step in the right direction. Something that London can be proud of. Truly exciting!
