Auckland, New Zealand is looking to expand their carrying capacity on the busiest routes in the city by implementing double decker buses as early as this year. Currently, they are going through a series of tests to ensure the buses meet the requirements for weight and size. The double deckers would increase the carrying capacity about 70%, adding a significant increase in capacity to the busy routes throughout the city center.
I was not surprised to hear that the newest James Bond movie "Skyfall" that is scheduled to be released in October 2012 is supposed to feature London's new Routemaster double decker bus. The action scene is supposed to take place in Trafalgar Square. As a huge James Bond fan, I can hardly wait until this film is released. It is hard to believe that this will be the 23rd 007 movie. Having a double decker bus in this flick will be the icing on the cake. For more information on the upcoming James Bond movie "Skyfall" check out the Wikipedia page here.
