DOUBLE decker buses are a typical means of transport in London, but this summer it is possible to ride one in Bratislava. It has become so popular, in fact, that its usage was extended through the end of August. Agáta Staneková, spokesperson of the Bratislava city transport company DPB, informed the SITA newswire about the extended operation of the bus in late July.
“Based on our surveys we can precisely assess its usage and occupancy, which was, especially during the first days of its operation, 100 percent,” Ľubomír Belfi, DPB general director told SITA.
The bus is especially popular among families with children and tourists, who enjoy the city views from the upper deck.
The double decker bus, named Sirius, runs from the historical building of the Slovak National Theatre (SND) via Jesenského, Štúrova, Pribinova, Karadžičova, Ulica 29. Augusta, Kollárovo Square,
DPB is considering using the double decker for a trial on a regular public transport line, too.
