London’s Routemaster Double Decker Buses Refreshed With Hybrid Version
London’s streets are about to have a whole new look. Well, actually new buses, which are set to replace the recently cancelled Routemaster and will arrive as early as 2011 with a full roll out hitting in 2012. So what makes these buses special? They’re hybrids and are 15% more efficient than current hybrids and use 40% less energy than a standard diesel double decker. Aside from the fuel improvements we’re really digging the curved lines and excessive amount of glass. Too bad LA’s buses can’t look this swank.
