Uniform

The uniform collection includes clothing and accessories worn by staff from the nineteenth century to the present day

Railway, tram and bus operating staff in London have worn distinctive uniforms and company badges since the nineteenth century. When London Transport was formed as a single authority in 1933 the company uniform was standardised, but retained variations in detail. This was to distinguish between the different parts of the company. Uniforms are designed to be practical and staff receive both a summer and winter issue. Transport for London continues to review and develop aspects of uniform design to meet modern requirements
