A new bus for London by Thomas Heatherwich

The design of the new bus was created by British designer Thomas Heatherwick.

What's new?
The design incorporates two staircases and three doors, including a hop-on-hop-off platform at the back of the bus.

The first of the new buses went into service in February, causing a stir with the return of a hop-on-hop-off platform at the back and bands of glass swooping round two stairwells.

Enjoy this short movie in which Thomas Heatherwick talks to Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs about redesigning the iconic red double-decker bus for London in this interview filmed by Dezeen at the preview of Heatherwick Studio: Designing the Extraordinary at the V&A museum in London.

Have you already seen the new bus in London? Is it cool? Which one do you prefer?
