Transported By Design: Vote for your favourite part of London transport

Written by

London is bloody lovely, isn't it? Obviously we're biased, but we've got another reason to hone in on the city's best bits now that TfL and the London Transport Museum have launched their Transported By Design campaign. From now until to October 1 you'll be able to vote for your favourite designs throughout the history of London transport. Whether that's Wilfred the Bunny, who was designed to fit the radiators of buses that served the capital's rural parts, the East Finchley archer who was chiseled to represent the long-lost forest of Enfield, or the infamous Underground roundel that's almost a century old, having been created by Edward Johnston in 1918 (pictured above). We've selected a few of our faves, but you can see the entire 100-strong shortlist on the TfL website. Get voting!
