The iconic symbol of London, the double-decker red bus is going through some image changes within the 'A New Bus For London' competition. A clever designer named Hugh Frost thought to combine the capabilities of civilian transportation with the freight transportation option during after hours.

The design of the bus is like something that a 13 year-old dreamed of, simply amazing and stylish in every kind of way. The seats of the bus fold and the main deck is fitted with a loading system that can enable the user to load standard European pallets.

The bus will be powered by fuel cells or an electric engine, thus will allow all-wheel steering, maximum maneuverability and a considerate reduction of air and accoustic city pollution.

In full passenger configuration, the bus provides seating for up to 90 passengers and standing room for a further 40 passengers, the total maximum passenger number with all lower deck standing is 150. In full freight configuration the bus is designed to house a number of 35 Euro pallets.

The bus, which features a low, flat single height floor, was created for the "A New Bus For London" competition, launched earlier this year by London's mayor, Boris Johnson. The concept has not been chosen, but the winner of the competition has not yet been announced.

This idea will support London's growth in both population and economic activity and will improve the efficiency of freight distribution and servicing in London. Moreover, air quality will definitely improve.
