Committed to a Cleaner Environment

Original Tour Bus We are the first London operator to use purpose-built, big, low-floor buses. Our industry-leading investment programme means a high proportion of our tour buses are now wheelchair accessible, a key part of our genuine commitment to offering a service which is accessible to all.

Any big red buses which are 5+ years old have been repowered with modern Euro standard engines and fitted with exhausts ensuring emissions are in line with that of a new vehicle. A big bus replacement programme also ensures that we continue to operate one of the most environmentally friendly big bus fleets in the Capital, as part of our commitment to a cleaner environment.
