Only route 17 will be getting new hybrid buses because the route runs from Archway to London Bridge via King’s Cross and Holborn Circus, which is in Central London.

Here’s a table which shows the next routes to receive new hybrids or zero emission buses.

If you look at the table, you’ll see that there’s just six more routes to go until the three-door two-staircase New Routemaster rollout program is completed. Don’t worry though, the design will live on as the two-door design known as the SRM.

Regarding the unknown hybrids, the private bus operating company will choose their hybrid bus type for their particular service - so it will remain a mystery until details are released nearer to the expected date.

As always, I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Google Plus which is @CLondoner92
