This is the instantly recognisable Routemaster bus that served the streets of London for more than 50 years.

Still drawing attention, and fondly remembered by those who have ridden in one.

The Open Top Routemaster always brings a smile to people’s faces, because it’s topless!

The sight of a gleaming vintage red open top Routemaster bus always attracts attention. This makes the bus perfect for business promotions or advertising campaigns. Special large banners to advertise your company can be attached to the sides of the bus.

Passengers can survey the perfect panoramic view that no other bus can provide. This makes her the ideal vehicle for sightseeing and being at the front of a race track.
