Lego Bus Shelter for London
To celebrate Transport for London’s (TfL) ‘Year of the Bus’, Trueform have teamed up with TfL and LEGO to create a full size bus-shelter and bus stop made out of LEGO bricks!
Lego Bus Stop Vital Statistics
- It is built with around 100,000 LEGO Bricks
- It has been created by Trueform in conjunction with UK’s only Certified LEGO Professional, Duncan Titmarsh
- It took 14 days to build
- The LEGO Bus Stop can be found in Regent Street, London W1 close to Hamleys, from 19 June until 15 July
2014 marks a number of important bus-related anniversaries including the 60th anniversary of the iconic Routemaster and 75th anniversary of the RT-type bus.
It’s also 100 years since hundreds of London buses were sent to the Western Front to play a crucial role during the First World War.
The bus stop has been installed ahead of one of the key events being celebrated during the ‘Year of the Bus’ – the ‘Regent Street Bus Cavalcade’ – which takes place on Sunday 22 June and will see fifty buses from the earliest horse-drawn model of the 1820s right up to the New Routemasters of today.
Leon Daniels, TfL’s Managing Director of Surface Transport, said: “We are delighted to team up with LEGO and Trueform to offer our passengers a bit of fun on their journey. Many thousands of people pass along Regent Street each day and we hope the new shelter will bring a smile to the face of even a hardened commuter.”
Emma Owen, PR Manager at LEGO comments: “LEGO is all about stretching your imagination and using bricks to build whatever your mind desires – there are no limits! We hope visitors to Regent Street enjoy this fantastic build, it truly shows that with LEGO you can build anything!”
Trueform’s Group Managing Director, Jonathan Morley, commented “Trueform are delighted to be able to support Transport for London and the Year of the Bus initiative.
As the manufacturers and installers of TfL’s 8,000+ non advertising bus shelters and 19,500+ bus stops, we are pleased to have been able to assist in this exciting and innovative Lego bus shelter project.”
