Silver Routemaster Bus at Hyde Park Corner
The Routemaster is an iconic double-decker bus, built between 1954 and 1968. It has an open platform and staircase to the rear where passengers would get on and off. The bus required two staff, the ticket collector, and the driver who was separated in his own compartment. Nearly were all built in red or green.

The Routemaster saw continuous service in London until 2005 when it was finally phased out in favour of wheel-chair friendly, single staff buses.

2,876 Routemasters were built, and around 1,000 are thought to still be existence.

A modern version of the Routemaster, the "New Bus for London" began service in February 2012. See LinkExternal link
