We operate this as an exclusive one to one experience on our private circuit where you can negotiate this giant vehicle in safety around typical road junctions and scenarios. You start with a short briefing about the techniques and practicality of the bus, followed by at least 15 minutes of driving time (more than double of other experiences), a variety of driving scenarios, from negotiating junctions and corners, stopping at a bus stop and a slalom section! The bus itself is easy to drive. It is fully automatic and has power steering, so all you need to do is focus on your navigation and control of this magnificent vehicle. Please bare in mind that the Routemaster design requires the driver to be able to climb up into the drivers cab, so reasonable physical fitness is required. After the experience you will receive a commemorative certificate. Spaces are limited, so buy your voucher online today.
