Design: London’s New Bus

When it comes to mayors of London, I was and am a fan of Ken Livingstone, and think Boris Johnson is a loveable buffoon. That said, I am a fan of the Routemaster, and not fond of the “bendy bus”.  I was therefore relieved to hear that British transport chiefs have announced the design of the new double-decker bus which is inspired by the decommissioned Routemaster. With its rounded corners and hop-on hop-off-door, Routemasters became a British icon over the 50 years of service it gave after its launch in the 1950s.
