Double-decker buses

Hi everyone!

The red double-decker buses are one of the most specials things in London.

If you are a tourist, for sure you will take a picture of it! But if you are a Londoner, red double-decker buses are just your usual transport.

There are approximately 8.600 iconic red buses carrying more than six millions (6.000.000!!!) passengers each weekday and there are 19.500 bus stops in the capital… Amazing, isn’t it?

When I first arrived at London I thought that it would be very difficult to move around the city by bus. But, believe me, it’s really easy and cheaper than the tube!

Getting on the upper deck is the most exciting, funniest way to see London.

The London bus fares are:

Cash (single fare) £2.40

Oyster (single fare) £1.45

Daily price cap £4.40

Children under the age of 15 can travel for free on London buses (the driver could require them a valid photocard).

Finally, the extra-point value question:

If you come to London how much will you pay for taking the bus???


Iconic: person or thing that is a symbol. Sagrada Familia is an iconic monument in Barcelona.

Weekday: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Weekend: Saturday and Sunday

Fare: the sum paid for travelling in a bus, train, plane, taxi…
Oyster: name of the travel card for London transports.
Daily price cap: the maximum price you pay in a day.

Kisses from London
