The London Bus is one of London's principal icons, the archetypal red rear-entrance double-deck Routemaster being recognised world-wide. The last bus specifically designed for London was the AEC Routemaster, built between 1956 and 1968. Since then, buses built for London's local services have all been variants of models built for general use elsewhere. Since the turn of the Millennium, there has been a shift to low-floor double-deck and articulated buses.
