London's Transport and the Olympics - Preparation, Delivery and Legacy

When London first applied as a contender to stage the 2012 Olympic Games, there was cynical speculation as to whether the transport infrastructure could cope should it win. During the bidding process for 2012, Transport for London, the capital's transport strategy provider, did its bit to promote the application with buses and Stratford station displaying prominent 'Back the Bid' slogans.

There was a 'can-do' mentality among transport management on this occasion, and in this book Malcolm Batten looks at the preparation and delivery of the Olympic and Paralympic games by London's transport providers. The transport legacy is also examined here, with previously unpublished photographs celebrating a landmark achievement in the history of London transport.

London Bus Routes One by One: 101-200

Following on from London Bus Routes One By One: 1-100, this volume takes a look at the next hundred routes in Transport for London's spectrum, from 101 to 200.
Spread out across the city and with a wealth of bus types from different operators, these busy services are caught amid 2021's gradual changeover from diesel and hybrid buses to pure electric and hydrogen operation.
All the routes have been subject to considerable change over the years they have been in existence, from extensions and re-routings to withdrawals and re-use of the same number, and later to operator changes in accordance with competitive tendering.

Illustrated with over 180 up-to-date colour photographs, this volume continues to build a snapshot of the fascinating modern London bus scene.
