Let's hope that someone has checkout all of the underpasses and over hangs on the routes.

I am so happy with the new double decker buses addition in go transit I wish if other transits follow the go transit so we can reduce pollution and trafic on the roads

Glad to hear you are happy with the double decker bus. Yes it does reduce pollution but that was not the reason Go Transit has them on the road. Does it really all boil down to $$$? According to this article from Macleans.ca, they are suggesting that we are just not doing enough to fight climate change.
What it will really take to stop global warming?

Was the picture taken in the UK?
I've read news about the double-decker but they only mentioned the seating capacity, but never the standing capacity. I'm an immigrant from Hong Kong and 99% of the buses there are double-deckers, and there is actually a standing (and seating) capacity marked on every bus.
