No more room on top for our double-decker buses

Further to the Vox Pop regarding public transport (DW 17 July), there needs to be bigger changes than the valuable, but iterative improvements suggested.

My pet hate is those bloody big buses that clog up the roads. Our crowded streets can no longer support those vast, wheezing, double-deckers that struggle to fill seats on a consistent basis during the ebb and flow of people moving on an average working day.

Better would be a bigger fleet of much smaller mini-bus type vehicles that would blend into the traffic and offer a service to the traveller that was on a level footing with all other four-wheeled vehicles. And at peak times, you send out more of them – it’s that simple.
