London gets some new wheels.

Editor's Pick

Heatherwick Studios teamed with bus company The Wright Group to create The New Bus for Transport for London. The two story bus will replace the city's classic Routemaster and will be 15% more fuel-efficient than existing hybrids and 40 percent more so than conventional double-decker diesels. It will also be much quieter than its counterparts, boasting a light and airy asymmetrical design. Glass at the rear and offside of the bus provides dramatic views to passengers, and two staircases and three doors will facilitate quick and smooth boarding.
