Icons: The Routemaster Bus Remade
The monumentally iconic Routemaster London bus has made a triumphant return to the streets of London. The bus will run between London's Victoria Station and Hackney, and has apparently been designed around the demanding needs of the modern day Londoner. The new bus, which has been approved by Transport for London (TfL), is fully equipped with the 'jump-on-jump-off' entrance to the rear of the bus which was definitive of the classic, original AEC Routemaster bus of old. Current Mayor of London, Boris Johnson loves it, but will it be enough to keep him as gaffer for a second term? Who knows!
