 Seven newly designed Poppy Buses will take to the streets in London until November 12 to mark Remembrance Day.  

The buses will run on various routes through the capital, with one travelling on route 8 through Tower Hamlets. 

The buses are part of Transport for London (TfL)’s tradition to support London’s Poppy Day, which helps to raise money for the Royal British Legion’s work for the British Army and their families.  

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “Like Londoners across our city, I am proud to be supporting London Poppy Day and would like to extend my thanks to the hundreds of volunteers from TfL, Network Rail and the Armed Forces who make this day a success year after year.” 

“I urge Londoners who are passing through our stations today to donate whatever they can in support of the Royal British Legion’s vital work with the Forces, veterans and their families.”

 Mike Brown MVO, London’s Transport Commissioner, said: “ TfL has a longstanding special relationship with the Royal British Legion and we are extremely proud to support their fundraising for veterans, serving personnel and their families on London Poppy Day.”
