A brief account is given of the reshaping of bus services in London since 1964, and of the introduction of one-man operated single decker buses. This change has led to unpredictable and unreliable services, and details are given of a prototype double-decker bus designed by British Leyland, in close co-operation with London transport. Special attention has been given to the conditions affecting operation, driving, passenger usage, and maintenance of buses in London. In addition, the prototype bus will operate in actual service conditions for 18 months before production commences at the end of 1977. It is envisaged that this bus will go into service as a fully proved, reliable and advanced bus. /TRRL/
