How long is a London bus? You might be surprised to learn that not all buses are the same. This photograph was taken by one of the Mitcham Removals teams on their way to see one of our customers. If you look at it closely, you will notice that drivers have parked two buses right beside each other in a traffic jam. Consider that the two buses shown in the photograph are of the same number and going toward the same destination. This is probably the longest bus in London in terms of the number of people both vehicles can accept onboard. Not only that but also in terms of the aggregated length of both vehicles.
The point is that some of London’s bus spotters have a good reason to be happy seeing this photo illustrating the longest bus in London. Not so for ordinary commuters, on the other hand. Especially those using buses going to Lavender Hill (as illustrated on the photograph). They have a very good reason to complain to TFL for wasting their time. If those buses of the same number stop at the same time at the same bus stop their schedule is definitely messed up.
