Bus Fare: Stories of the London Bus

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Instantly recognizable, endlessly imitated: London’s buses are iconic. Not merely a vital component of the city’s infrastructure, they are equally embedded in its culture; written about, sung about, joked about, filmed, painted (and painted on), advertised, and celebrated in myriad ways.

Join social historians Travis Elborough and Joe Kerr on a journey celebrating the unique relationship that Londoners have with their most important mode of transport.

What routes are best loved and why, and what stories and memories are created daily on this beloved mode of transport? Elborough and Kerr, and contributors to their new anthology Bus Fare, reveal all.

Tourists take the tube – but real Londoners take the bus.

Bus Fare is available to buy from London Transport Museum’s shop. Travis and Joe will be signing copies of their book after the talk.

Tickets: Adults £12; Concessions and LTM Friends £10
