London Buses & Trams 2000

London’s buses at the start of the 21st Century features both the old and new bus design. Routemasters designed in the 1950’s are still prolific in the Heart of the West End.  Increasing numbers of new low-floor
double deck buses are rapidly replacing earlier generation one person operated vehicles all over the London area.

This video initially features a photo gallery of LONDON TRANSPORT vehicles taken in the 1970’s and 80’s.
We then view the East Lancs / DAF single deckers used on special services to and from the Millennium Dome at
Greenwich Peninsular, as well as other vehicles from a variety of operators who run into this terminal.
We also witness the interesting special operation and vehicles of London General’s service to the Chelsea Flower Show from Victoria.  We progress around the West End featuring Routemaster’s, Leyland Titan’s, Metrobuses, Leyland and Volvo Olympians, as well as the variety of single deckers – at some of the busiest junctions in the capital.  These include Hyde Park Corner, Marble Arch, Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Aldwych.  At the latter point and at Holborn we see many low-floor double deckers based on Dennis Trident and DAF chassis.
Older OPO buses are shown as we visit Wimbledon, Clapham Junction and Bromley.

The new Tramlink operations area recorded in Croydon, which brings the first trams back to the streets if London since 1952.
