Answered By:

As the routes for New Routemasters are not pre-selected and subject to negotiation with the bus contracts, it is not possible to state how many will be in one-person operation for 2015 and 2016. Of the routes that have been converted so far, the number without customer service assistants is around 140 out of the 300 buses in service.
