In 2005 London Transport took these lovely Routemaster buses off the streets of London, due to concerns about disabled access…but since then there has been many a call for them. Tourists, Film crews and Londoners alike have missed this old traditional Gem…But I am pleased to tell you that by the year 2012 they aim to have a new fleet of these traditional buses with curved glass roofs and up to date mod cons, to give the passenger a total new/old experience for tourism in London! Horaah!

The original Routemaster was an icon of London…so in the meantime…and it is a long wait until 2012! visitors can still have a ride on this wonderful bus on heritage Route 15! (shown above and below)
