All aboard the London Bus sculpture trail
For the next seven weeks there will be 41 new buses on the streets of London. But these aren’t ordinary buses- these are brilliant decorated, 1m high bus sculptures, created as part of TfL’s Year of the Bus celebrations.
TfL have partnered with Wild in Art to create the Year of the Bus Sculpture Trails, bringing businesses and artists together to create these fantastic works of bus art. Londoners and visitors to the city will get the chance to discover the sculptures by following trails across London’s streets, parks and public spaces. We’ve sponsored the ‘All Aboard the Number 8’ bus, pictured above, which has been designed by Anna Rawles & Jennifer Rodgers and can be found on the ‘Around the river’ trail’.
At the end of the event, the bus sculptures will be brought together in a final display before being auctioned, with all proceeds split between three charities: Kids Company, Transaid and London Transport Museum.
