New Routemaster Unveiled

The final designs for a new Routemaster double-decker bus for London have been unveiled by the Mayor.

When he took office in 2008, Boris Johnson promised to bring back a 'greener' version of the Routemaster, as well as to scrap bendy buses.

The new-look vehicle has three entrance points including the open hop-on, hop-off platform that was such a feature of the old one.

The Mayor says it'll be ready by 2012.
