Part of the Transit Service's Plan to save millions of dollars in operating costs is to add more double-decker buses to the fleet.I'm not really sure how the double-decker buses result in any significant cost-savings, but I find them to be a comfortable ride when I'm on them. They are limited, though; if I'm not mistaken, limited height clearance in some parts of the city restricts where they can go. And while common sense might lead you to believe twice the stories means twice the passengers, significant seating is eaten up by the staircase to the top deck, and no passengers are allowed to stand on the upper deck, either.
But when you're on the upper deck and lucky enough to sit in the front row, you can pretend you're driving. Which is pretty sweet.
