More than 100,000 LEGO bricks were used for the shelter located near the iconic London-based toy store, Hamleys, on Regent Street.
Bus Stop Statistics

- Created by the U.K.'s only Certified LEGO Professional, Duncan Titmarsh
- The LEGO Bus Stop can be found in Regent Street, London W1 close to Hamleys until July 15th
- Shell and installation been provided by Trueform Engineering, TfL's contractor responsible for the supply, installation and maintenance of bus stops, shelters and Real Time Bus Information signs
"Many thousands of people pass along Regent Street each day and we hope the new shelter will bring a smile to the face of even a hardened commuter," said Leon Daniels, TfL's Managing Director of Surface Transport.
Year of the Bus
2014 marks a number of important bus-related anniversaries including the 60th anniversary of the iconic Routemaster and 75th anniversary of the RT-type bus.
It's also 100 years since hundreds of London buses were sent to the Western Front to play a crucial role during the First World War.
Throughout 2014, TfL — working in partnership with London Transport Museum — is hosting a number of engaging events, exhibitions, recreations and other activities aimed at re-connecting Londoners with their bus network and reminding the world of the role that London buses, the bus drivers and the staff who support them, play in keeping the city moving throughout the year.
