Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am delighted to announce there are already 113 New Bus for London vehicles operating in the capital this year.

The number will climb significantly in 2014 and 2015, and reach the target of 600 in 2016 as forecast.

The next route scheduled for conversion will be route 148 from Camberwell Green to White City on February 15, operated by London United, which will use 28 vehicles.
