New dou­ble-decker buses don’t fit ev­ery­where

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Mex­ico City bus driv­ers have dis­cov­ered the hard way that their new dou­ble-decker buses don’t fit ev­ery­where in the city. A driver dam­aged the top of his bus by driv­ing it into a sta­tion whose roof was too low to clear the ve­hi­cle. The city re­ceived the new, Bri­tish-built, Lon­don­style red buses just last week, and they are still con­duct­ing test runs. But the buses are only able to run on a few lines of Mex­ico City’s con­fined-lane Metrobus routes. The di­rec­tor of the Metrobus sys­tem says the driver in­volved in Wed­nes­day’s ac­ci­dent took an unau­tho­rized short­cut on an­other route.
