    It depends, there is also a huge amount of engineering that goes into a bus, especialy double decker ones. I have only ever been on a plane and ship once, I go on a bus every day.

    The thing with buses they are not like cars, if you want one brand new you don't buy it of the shelf. You go chasis maker and get the chasis complete with suspension and engine, then you go a coachbuilder and ask them to build bodywork onto the chasis.

    This why you can get two totally different types of buses that look the same, its like putting an Astra body onto the chasis of a Ford Focus.
