Our Fleet, Your Bus

Although Routemaster buses look alike they are all different. Every bus has a unique history and presentation. Although the vast majority of Routemaster’s were originally hand built to the same specification for London Transport, since entering service and subsequent owners these buses have undergone different upgrades or conversions and have varying maintenance standards since being decommissioned from London service.

Our buses are lovingly maintained to a high standard both mechanically and cosmetically. We don't use our buses for public services such as rail replacement, they are only used for private charters. Our fleet comprises of traditional Routemaster's for transport and also buses configured specifically for events and promotional activities.

Our First Class buses have been reverted or maintained in their original 1960’s specification. This specifically includes, period tartan upholstery, tungsten bulb lighting in the saloon, original wall coverings and flooring which give a true reflection of the buses during the golden age of London Transport. These vehicles have a particular special feel of originality and occasion.
