Routemasters became an icon of London
A classic double decker bus is to return to the streets of Nottingham.
The red 1965 Routemaster bus, which will have a conductor, will operate on a heritage route from Parliament Street in the city centre to Arnold.
The vehicle, which was rarely found outside London by the early 1980s, will return to Nottingham on 7 April.
Bellamy Coaches, which will run the service, said it hoped conductors will give a more friendly and efficient service to customers.
'Good for tourism'
John Murray, from the company, said: "We've decided to bring the old routemasters back to bring a heritage service to Nottingham.
"We thought they would be a good vehicle, people will remember them from the past, it will be good for tourism... it's something different."
The firm say it hopes passengers will also feel safer with a conductor on board the service.
Routemasters still operate on two tourist routes in London taking passengers past some of the city's top attractions.
