TRAITS

Why are London Buses red?

  • Way back at the start of the 20th century there were a number of different companies that owned buses which operated in London.
  • They were all in competition with each other and various colours were used to differentiate routes.
  • In 1907 one company, the powers that be at London General Omnibus Company had a genius idea.
  • They decided to paint the entire fleet red, making their buses stand out from their rivals, and place numbers on the front of the bus to tell people the route it would be taking.
