The New Double Decker

Nothing says London like the Double Decker buses and the black cabs, for some reason these buses and cabs only feel right in London and no where else. The taxis have gotten updates over the years and now finally they have come up with a new design which is supposed to come into the streets of London by 2012, a few at a time I think. The worst bus they ever made for London were those long extended ones, with a rubber piece in the middle, those long buses cause a lot of traffic and more annoying then they were useful. Back in 2005 they got a few of those and said they were the future of buses but thankfully they came to their senses and realized that those extended buses only cause more traffic. Now these buses got the facelift they needed and hopefully the technology as well. And the wacky guy in the suit standing in some of the pictures is the Mayor of London.

  1. Why is the Mayor of London so messed up? Nice double decker though, they did it well, can’t wait to see them on the streets in 2012.

    Borris Johnson is all right, just a little wacky (the mayor)

    these look interesting, and just in time for London 2012 olympics as well.

    will be weird seeing these on some of the old parts of London

    Nice, more aerodynamic :P

  4. @The M Code – It will take sometime for them to be all over the place! The Mayor is just Wackey that way! lol

    @Phil – He is wackey! That is exactly how he is! They said by 2012 they will only have about 5, not as many as I thought they would for the 2012 Olympics!

    @Bo Husain – I think they modernized an original design which is good!
