Pretty cool. Still the iconic double-decker bus, with a modern twist.

I like it, as SV said, an ode to the older model, but still very contemporary...

I love it, retro works well on cars so why shouldn't it work for a bus?

Well the london buses where always retro so its not as if its a new twist on it. It looks good as a new version of the ongoing london trademark bus. I'm also glad it is a hybrid

As someone who lived in London and made frequent trips on Routemasters, I love it.

For those who don't know what a Routemaster is, there is a convenient website out there.

I like the fact this bus is a comtemprary "take" on the original Routemaster design, but roomier and allows for people who are wheelchair-bound to use the bus.

They need to do a left-hand drive version powered by an LNG-fueled engine so it could be sold for certain US markets (this would be great for New York City).
