When is a bus not a bus?
Buses, on the other hand, are always local. In addition to London s familiar, red, double decker buses, all UK cities have some kind of local bus service – many with double decker buses as well. There are also dozens of country bus services.
In the past, I d always found local buses among the greatest mysteries for a visitor. How do you find the stop? Will it pass the places you want to go? Do you need exact change? Yet taking an ordinary public bus is a very cheap way for a visitor to have a good look around.
