London Retiring Red Routemaster Buses

The famed red doubledecker buses are gone.

Glad I got to ride on one of these rolling icons. Even if I almost got a ticket.

Re: London Retiring Red Routemaster Buses

Yeah, sad. I'm shocked they didn't wait until 2016 as mentioned in the article.

That sucks. Glad I also was able to ride on one before they were dumped.

Re: London Retiring Red Routemaster Buses

Had my last ride on an official one yesterday, Charing Cross to Fleet Street.

You'll be able to ride on a tourist service version in future, but not a London Transport type one.

Change is as good as a rest!
