Dozens of London's red buses are being given a second colour to help passengers navigate the city. Pictured, the 150 bus with splashes of blue to correlate with its route

I would suggest that if you're looking at a bus side on, you've probably missed it

You would still notice it at an angle as illustrated by this picture ---

I take it that this new idea is replacing the old tried and tested  idea of having the route directly in front in large orange digital letters which can allow buses to change routes to fill gaps caused by buses undergoing maintenance or repair, a much harder feat to achieve when the route is permanently painted on the side of the bus. 

Now that I think of it, it's a shit idea

London will have a far greater number of buses in operation than every other city in the UK
Its not as if the following situation will ever occur 
- one bus breaks down , we have another one available but ohh fiddlesticks its only the wrong goddang colour

That situation probably  never occurred because they used electronic number boards that could be easily changed. 

Permanently painted routes ensure those busses allocated to their respective routes are the only ones available to do those routes 

Less busy routes will have less buses allocated to them, if one or two of those busses are taken out of service, it means a direct impact on the regularity of that service 

Before Khan and his "good idea" that would not have been a problem

No such thing as a 'less busy route' in London

Not really the same thing is it?? 

Khan isn't replacing buses from the 70's with flying busses of 2017 is he?? 

He has spent millions painting the  number of the bus route on the side of the bus directly above the clear window that still display the old style of bus route 

If he is going for redundancy, he cracked it

 Khan won't be happy until the Buses have chickens and goats on the roof to make him and his followers feel at home.
