Bottom Deck of the Boris Bus (back view), Victoria Bus Station
This is the lower deck of one of the eight new NB4L Wright Gemini 2's have been
bought for Route 38 (between Victoria and Hackney Central).

The bus is also known as Boris Bus to replace the 'hated' bendy buses.

It was waiting in a queue (with other older Route 38 buses) at Victoria Bus Station.

I have just used my Oystercard to pay for a trip to Islington (1.40) and was the only passenger at that point. The oystercard reader is seen on the right.
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.
