Have you spotted one of these buses with a difference yet?
Seven poppy buses are taking to the capital’s streets until November 12 to mark Remembrance Day - with one travelling on route 8 between Bow Church and Holborn.
The buses are part of Transport for London’s annual support of the Poppy Appeal, which helps raise funds for the Royal British Legion’s work with current and former members of the Armed Forces and their families.
In addition, Tube users may hear announcements from EastEnders stars Dame Barbara Windsor and Shane Richie encouraging passengers to support the appeal.
Transport commissioner Mike Brown said: “TfL has a longstanding special relationship with the Royal British Legion and we are extremely proud to support their fundraising.
“We are encouraged by the generous spirit Londoners show each year.”
