It will be a red-letter day in the lives of London buses. The new London bus design was unveiled by London mayor, Boris Johnson yesterday.

The design of the London Bus is based on the old Routemaster model which is an icon on London, but the iconic 1954 design is getting a much needed revamp.
The new bus will be powered by eco-friendly hybrid technology. According to Transport for London, it will be 15 percent more fuel-efficient compared to current hybrid buses. It is 40 percent more efficient than diesel double deckers.
Boris Johnson said, “This iconic new part of our transport system is not only beautiful, but also has a green heart beating beneath its stylish, swooshing exterior.”
