This item is not new and is sold as a collectable and as seen and descri However, in December the new Mayor of London Sadiq Khan decided that no more orders would be placed for the bus after only 1, of Boris Johnson's envisaged fleet of 2, had been procured. Most local buses within London form a network managed by London Buses , an arm of Transport for London.
Services are operated by private sector companies under contract to London Buses. With the introduction of the London congestion charge in central London and because at peak times the Underground is operating at maximum capacity, many bus service improvements have been undertaken, and central bus services are currently enjoying something of a resurgence. Although the rear-entrance double-deck AEC Routemaster is the archetypal London bus, their numbers have dwindled quite quickly owing to their age the oldest are now more than 60 years old , their inability to accept wheelchairs or pushchairs , and their requirement for a two-person crew.
As described below, Routemasters are now restricted to one heritage route. All other local bus services are now operated by modern low-floor buses, which may be single-deck or double-deck. Most buses operating in London have two sets of doors, and passengers board the bus using the front door and alight using the rear door, whilst some buses on less busy routes have only one door. All these buses conform to the Disability discrimination act , and can accept passengers in wheelchairs and other mobility impaired passengers.
Some local bus routes in the outer areas of London cross the London boundary. London Buses services that cross the boundary have standard red buses, and charge London fares, at least within the boundary.
Buses in London
Buses from outside London that cross into London are in their operators' own colour schemes, and may not accept the London fares even within the boundary. A Metroline Alexander Dennis Enviro on route Because the operating contracts for local buses in London are subject to a system of competitive tender, a wide range of companies now operate bus routes across London. Privately run bus services may also be operated independently of the regulated London bus network, but still require a permit from TfL. This permit applies to any service which has a stop in London and another within 15 miles of Greater London, such as commuter coaches, school buses or supermarket shuttle buses.
Night buses began running as early as , and they form part of the London Buses network. Originally all the routes were distinguished by an N prefixed route number and had their own premium fare structure, in part because the routes are greatly extended from their daytime equivalents. For example, while route 9 travels from Aldwych to Hammersmith , route N9 continues 16 miles on from Hammersmith to Heathrow Airport Terminal 5.
There are also hour routes, which run at both day- and night-times. Some of these only run at night during weekends, whereas others run it every day. The rear-entrance double-deck AEC Routemaster has been withdrawn from all regular service routes, a small fleet are retained to operate on Heritage route Route 9H was withdrawn on 26 July AEC Routemaster buses are not accessible to passengers in wheelchairs and other mobility impaired passengers. Because of this, the heritage route is operated as a short-working of a regular service route bearing the same route number, thus ensuring that passengers unable to board the heritage buses are offered equivalent alternative transport arrangements.
A common sight in central London are tour buses , the majority being open-top buses. These are double-decker buses with a fully or partially open upper deck, which provide tourist services with either live or recorded commentary. Most of these services allow passengers to embark and disembark at any of the company's stops , continuing their journey on a later bus. There are several competing operators of such services which do not form part of the London Buses network and do not issue or accept London Buses tickets, although at least one paints its buses in the same red as London's local buses.
Other tours use coaches and generally need to be booked in advance through travel agents. Long-distance coaches link London with the rest of the United Kingdom and with other cities in Europe. Most of these services are run by National Express and their European affiliate Eurolines. National Express' predominantly white vehicles are common on the roads of central London, on their way to and from their terminus at Victoria Coach Station.
In , competition for long distance traffic was introduced by Megabus , a subsidiary of the large UK bus operating company Stagecoach. This company operates cheap services aimed at students and the like, which must be booked in advance on the internet. Other coach services link London to medium-distance destinations, and unlike National Express or Megabus provide walk-on fares. Good examples of this are the Green Line services to the Home Counties, mainly operated by Arriva , the service to the city of Oxford , where Stagecoach's frequent Oxford Tube service competes with Go-Ahead's similar Oxford Express service, and the many commuter services to medium-distance destinations operated by individual coach companies during peak times.
National Express is also the principal airport bus operator, serving Heathrow , Gatwick and Stansted with its National Express Airport brand. Unlike their longer distance cousins, these are walk-on services, which serve stops throughout central London rather than running to Victoria Coach Station. London City Airport used to provide express shuttle bus services to connect the airport to rail and underground stations at Canning Town , Canary Wharf and Liverpool Street. These operated at a premium fare compared with the parallel but slower London Buses services but did not survive the extension of the Docklands Light Railway to the airport in late Currently, London has 73 electric buses.
Note that these figures only take Transport for London services into consideration, and exclude school and other bus services. Route 25 , running between Oxford Circus and Ilford , is the busiest bus route. The next busiest routes over 10 million are: Route U9 has the highest mean observed speed of daytime routes, at The slowest was 15H at 3. Route X26 , running from Croydon to Heathrow Airport , is the longest daytime route at 24 miles. The next longest are routes , and all 17 miles , and 16 miles and 15 miles.
