2011: Classic double decker London bus
transportation, buses, public transportation, London
The Old Routemaster buses are definitely an icon of London transportation. They are the buses where you could jump on and off at the back. There was a ticket inspector to sell you a ticket onboard from a machine they had hung round their neck, and the driver was tucked away in a cab at the front. Unfortunately, they went out of general service at the end of 2005 as they were not accessible for wheelchairs and baby strollers. The buses are still used on the historic number 9 line.
