The London Bus is one of London's principal icons, the archetypal red rear-entrance AEC Routemaster being recognized worldwide. Although the Routemaster has been phased out of regular service, with only one route still using the vehicles (15H), the majority of buses in London are still red and therefore the red double-decker bus remains a widely recognised symbol of the city.
London Buses is the subsidiary of Transport for London (TfL) that manages bus services within Greater London. It was formed following the Greater London Authority Act 1999 that transferred control of bus services in Greater London and its surrounding areas from the UK Government's London Regional Transport (LRT) to TfL, controlled by the locally elected Mayor of London. Transport for London's key areas of direct responsibility through London Buses are the following: planning new bus routes.
London's buses are zone-less. If you have a Travelcard it is valid in any zone on the buses, so if you have a Travelcard valid only for zones 1 and 2 you can use it on buses in Zone 6 if you wanted. Children under 11 can travel free on the London Underground, DLR and buses without a ticket. If a child is between 11 and 15 years old you require an Oyster 11-15 Photocard (which has a fee, see below). This allows 11 to 15 year olds to travel at child fares on the Underground, DLR, Overground and some trains, free on the buses. If you are a short-term visitor (in London for up to 14 days) with kids between 11-15 you can take advantage of the Young Visitor Discount
London is a city that never sleeps and the main bus lines run 24 hours a day. Besides the lines that run 24 hours a day, many buses run at night and can be identified by the letter N in front of their normal number, so for example, the bus 15 will become N15 at nighttime. Note that these lines can have a different route at nighttime. The 24-hour buses normally have the same route. The frequency of these night buses depends on the day of the week. On Friday and Saturday, it can be up to every 10 – 15 minutes. You can find a map of these night buses here: Map of London night buses.
