This is on Route 38 between Victoria Bus Station (beside the Railway Station - on the right) and Hackney Central.

The modern bus is also known as Boris Bus, it was designed to replace the 'hated' bendy buses.
Boris Bus

This is a 21st century replacement of the iconic Routemaster as a bus built specifically for use in London. Designed by Heatherwick Studio, it is built by Wrightbus, and features the 'hop-on hop-off' rear open platform of the original Routemaster, but meets the requirements for modern buses to be fully accessible. The first bus entered service on 27 February 2012.
