In answer to question number 2021/1419 you stated that “Transport for London (TfL) is currently exploring options for rehoming or selling the buses. I hope this may lead to the vehicles being celebrated in other ways, such as heritage days on regular routes at weekends. TfL continues to maintain London traditions in other ways, such as our iconic red livery on buses and through the work of the London Transport Museum.” Please provide an update on this statement you made.

Transport for London (TfL) sold six heritage Routemaster buses to private buyers in December 2021 through a competitive bidding process. TfL is currently looking at options to rehome the remaining heritage Routemaster buses.
