From A to B and back again - the story of the London bus


Join London Transport Museum’s Research Fellow Oliver Green for an illustrated London bus journey over time. Find out how we got from 20 motor buses in 1905 to 7,500 serving the city today. How did the double decker become as iconic for London as the gondola is to Venice? Why are London buses red? Who were the pirates? Did a bus really jump Tower Bridge? What route is London’s love affair with the bus taking now?
