Eight Platinum Jubilee buses are now running in London ahead of the big holiday weekend.
Decked out in purple and silver, the double-deckers have the official Platinum Jubilee decal on their sides.
Transport for London unveiled the buses on May 13e 2022, just three weeks before the anniversary weekend.
There are eight Anniversary Buses with the striking purple decorations. They will be deployed on routes past some of London’s most famous royal monuments, including Kensington Palace.
They are paid for by bus companies Arriva, RATP, Abellio, Go-Ahead, Stagecoach and Metroline.
Seb Dance, the Deputy Mayor of Transport, said: “London is looking forward to hosting the historic platinum anniversary celebrations in June, and it will be exciting to see the festive TfL buses on our streets”
The Jubilee special vehicles were launched by a bus with a number plate beginning with ”ER70”.
Tfl recommends anyone using their services over the anniversary weekend ahead of us due to the high demand they expect. They have a special page with advice, timetables and information for the anniversary, which you can find here.
