RCL2260 CUV260C

RCL2260 65 Seat Green Routemaster With Rear Doors

The last one of a batch of green double deck Routemaster's. Originally for use on long distance routes from one side of London to other. The body is same size as on a central area red bus but with less seats to give additional leg room and deeper seats for more comformatble ride over this greater distance. The bus also features platform doors on rear and uprated heating system making it an ideal choice for an event in winter.
