DSCN0185 Arriva London LT2 (LT61 BHT) - 3 Apr 2013
Wednesday 3 April 2013 (1351) – ‘New bus for London’ LT2 (LT61 BHT) one of the eight NBfL prototypes operated by Arriva London on London Buses contracted service 38 seen stuck in traffic in New Oxford Street. Built by Wrightbus the buses are hybrid powered and the engine goes to rest during these periods thus reducing emissions and exhaust. The open rear platform, supervised by an attendant, allows passengers to freely board and alight when the bus is held up like this and so passengers are not ‘trapped’ on board when they could otherwise get of and maybe walk to their onward destination. During off peak times the rear doors are permanently closed and locked and the bus operated by the driver only passengers entering by the front doors and leaving by the centre doors.
