Some new images of Thomas Heatherwick's London routemaster bus redesign have come to the surface. The new version of the iconic bus features two staircases and three doors - enabling travellers to once again hop on and off whenever they want!

Apparently the new bus will also be fuel efficient, saving 15% more energy than the existing hybrid buses and 40% more than the conventional diesel versions.

Heatherwick said:

"It has been 50 years since a bus was last designed and commissioned specifically for London. This has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a team to look again at the opportunities for a new open-platform bus. It has been an honour to be asked by Londonís transport authority to take an integrated approach and design everything that you see and experience from the outside down to the tiniest details of the interior."

Seven of these buses will soon be appearing of the route of bus 38.
