Information about Double-decker bus
Double-decker bus Running on gasoline, dates back to the 19th century. Since then, this type of mechanical transport has undergone significant changes and gained great popularity in different areas of life. And this is not surprising - the bus is convenient to use, roomy, and its modern models offer a maximum of comfortable conditions.
At one time it was created to increase passenger capacity on London roads. Now such a bus is rarely used as urban transport, but it has found excellent use in the tourism sector.
The double-decker bus is intended mainly for the transport of seated passengers, but it also has the potential for long distances. A special advantage during excursions is for those who are sitting on the top floor and have the opportunity to explore the surroundings. Some models of transport have an open top, which is very popular with tourists, but not suitable for rainy days.
The advantages of a two-story bus are obvious. It holds twice as many passengers as usual; possesses high maneuverability and dynamics; It has a high attraction for tourists. There is an erroneous opinion about the tendency of these buses to tip over, but, in fact, they are all equipped with an anti-tipping mechanism.
It is worth considering that a double-decker bus has a number of inconveniences. In particular, high garages of great height and the development of a route excluding low bridges and the proximity of trees are needed.
Now double-decker buses are produced by several companies from different countries. Among them are Sweden's Volvo concern, the German company MAN and its subsidiary NEOMAN, as well as the German bus manufacturer Mersedes-Benz.
