The New Bus for London will be a bus the Capital can be proud of. Inspired by the old Routemaster, it will be modern, fully accessible and use the latest green technology.
The countdown to the new bus is now on. A full-size mock-up of the bus, made by Wrightbus of Northern Ireland, arrived in London in November 2010 where it was officially unveiled by the Mayor.
The prototype will arrive in London in November 2011 and the first five buses will enter passenger service in early 2012.
