New Routemaster boarding change

Passengers using London’s New Routemaster buses will only be able to board them using the front door in future, transport bosses have said.

The vehicles were originally designed to allow people to enter through doors in the rear, middle, or at the front.

A TfL (Transport for London) pilot, however, showed that fare evasion rates were twice as high on New Routemasters compared to other buses.

TfL will introduce the new boarding rule to its vehicles on Saturday 25th January.
