The Routemaster – A London Icon

  • This article first appeared in the Bus-News magazine Issue 1 2022.

Treadmaster Flooring is proud to have been part of this famous bus since the very beginning.

Treadmaster’s TM3 & TM4 flooring has long been associated with the Routemaster bus; from its inception in the early 1950s, right through the 1960s and continuing to the vehicle’s extensive revival in 2012. This affiliation continues to this day with the Routemaster Association, an organisation tenaciously keeping this transport icon on the road.

In the last six months Treadmaster Flooring has been working alongside the Routemaster Association to supply it with all the original flooring components, which it in turn sources to its ever- increasing membership. Some of these components have not been manufactured in over 25 years, consequently leading to a complete redesign and followed by production on our state-of-the-art CNC Router.

TM3 & TM4’s synthetic rubber- bonded cork materials give both an excellent degree of oil and grease resistance, coupled with a high co- efficient of friction properties; these combined compounds and features give both materials a durability suitable for many years of service. The Routemaster Association was formed in the late 1980s with the aim of supporting operators and owners who had started to acquire examples of this London icon following the commencement of large-scale withdrawals from London service.
