Red Arrow (Bus)
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Red Arrow was branding given to two current and several former London bus limited stop routes used as high frequency commuter services in central London. The most recent Red Arrow services were route 507 and route 521, where the name was dropped from September 2009. London Transport had instigated a Bus Reshaping Plan in 1966 to examine bus service operation, and settled on replacing some double-decker buses with long single-decker buses, which would have extra capacity by implementing a 'standee bus' model as used on the continent, whereby the fixed seating in the bus would be minimised to that required off-peak, with hand holds fitted to allow maximum standee capacity at peak times.
