Vintage Routemaster Buses Come to Commuters’ Rescue

According to IBT, a fleet of Routemaster buses built in the swinging 60s has been drafted back into service to save Londoners from the misery of the tube strike.

Routmaster Busses

Transport for London (TfL) has drafted in 40 of the vintage buses, which were manufactured between 1954 and 1968, after parts of the London Underground ground to a halt.

Several of the buses were offered up by private tour operators, who bought them after they were taken out of service in 2005 and now use them to provide novel transport for weddings and other functions.
