A new era began on the C10 bus route this weekend when the first of the new electric buses entered service.

The C10 links Victoria with Canada Water via Elephant & Castle, Bermondsey and the Rotherhithe peninsula.

The fleet of 34 Portuguese-built CaetanoBus electric vehicles is shared with route P5 and is based at Abellio’s Walworth depot near Camberwell Green.

The new buses feature a camera monitoring system in place of conventional wing-mirrors.

There are also USB sockets for passengers to charge their mobile devices.

The new buses will gradually take over from the previous hybrid fleet.
