Arriva London’s Route 38 New Routemaster wrapped for James Bond
Route 38, one of the busiest London bus routes, would always be a natural place to advertise a forthcoming event, so it was not surprising to see the launch of the latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’ being advertised on Arriva London’s route 38 New Routemaster buses in the last few days.
The complete wrap of the buses transforms them from their London iconic red, to fantastic moving advertising spaces, ideal for announcing such a phenomenon to the London audience.
Coincidentally the association to the route is not new, as the New Routemaster on route 38 had a part in the previous bond film ‘Skyfall’.

Vintage bus parade at Victoria Bus Station to mark the 70th anniversary of the first post-war RT bus features an Arriva route
To mark the 70th anniversary of the first post-war RT bus, there was a parade of vintage buses at Victoria Bus Station on Wednesday morning.
The visit had been organised following Leon meeting Enfield bus driver Malkiat Birdi, whilst he was attending the TfL initiative for drivers called Hello London.
Making the capital’s buses as simple to use as the London Underground is a new initiative being trialled on seven London bus routes, including Arriva London routes 150 and 128.
In association with TfL and HCT Transport, we opened our doors to welcome the public, giving them the opportunity to explore the garage, meet our operations teams, ride on a bus through the bus wash, tour our operations control centres and see & ride on some historic preserved buses.
Our recent route gains in North London include route 19, from Finsbury Park to Battersea Bridge (South Side), which has meant implementing an extensive mobilisation programme to maintain our high standards.
One of the most important elements in Arriva London’s development is the training and education it offers its staff, from engineering apprentices to graduate trainees, everyone in the business is offered the opportunity to develop and flourish.
