The aim of our competition was to harvest a range of creative ideas for a bus fit for the 21st century. We will now pass the best designs and concepts on to bus manufacturers, so they can be developed into final design proposals.
A competitive tendering process will then determine to which company we award the final contract to build the new bus for London. This should be decided by the end of next year.
The first prototype of the new bus will be on the streets of London by 2011.
