Amongst the first buses to replace the fated bendibuses were standard Mercedes Citaros, which did not bend in the middle. Go-Ahead London MEC6 (BG09JJY) is seen at work on Red Arrow route 521 near London Bridge in late 2009.
Seen on the 521 on the same day is MEC17 (BD09ZPX).
Having a day off from rush hour crowds is Citaro MEC14 (BD09ZPU). The bus is coping with the crowds heading for the Derby at Epsom, on the 406F shuttle service, from Epsom Station.
MEC14 again, resting on the Downs, in company with Mercedes MEC26 (BD09ZRK).
In service on the Embankment with the London Eye behind is MEC42 (BT09GDH) in September 2011.
