Are there still double decker buses functioning in London England?
Yes, though not on all routes.
I wonder if they are a part of public transit.
There are, but it is sad to say that the traditional "Routemaster" bus is being forced out. The "Routemaster" was the last of the "traditional" double-decker where you entered the bus at the rear, and paid your fare to a conductor. Even though many of these vehicles are 40 years old and have been refurbished, this kind of setup seemed easier and didn't mess up traffic like newer buses do(where you enter the bus at the front, and pay the driver).
You will have no probles catching a double decker bus while you are in London. The open top bus tours actually use them if you choose to go that route.
I rode them a couple of times when my dad was in the Air Force in England. I remember it being a wonderful treat!
I can't wait!
I would advise the double-decker tour bus. The standard city double deckers are fine, but don't sit in the back on the second level - that is where smokers, drug users, drinkers (and worse) often hide from the driver.
Sorry - that the real world in 2004.
Kildare, you mean the special double decker, or the ones that have about 4 city tours hop on hop off?
Guess what? London is not the only place that has double decker buses. So does Athens, Greece.
