    Might depend on where you are I dunno.
    Alright, I don't know where you are but in west London, more specifically around Hammersmith, fulham or chelsea etc. These new buses are everywhere. It's kinda dark red(burgundy) very old style.

    What do you think of them?

    Personally I detest them. What bright spark decided there should be no Windows on the top deck because I'm this close the having a panic attack? The air is just soo still and hard to breath in. And I'm not one to be claustrophobic.

    Also, why the heck is there two places in which you can climb up the stairs from. I mean why make it easier for some killer to come at me from behind?

    Does anyone else feel like that- about the no windows thing? Like I'm really struggling to get air.

    Don't care; public transport is for plebs.


    On a side note, I do like where they have placed the stairs.

    Who knows? With these buses you are also able to get on the back door and expect to use your oyster in the beeping machine (don't really know what it's called).

    Again, pretty easy to get on without a ticket.

    Jus sayin'
