The MTA is taking a cue from those double deckers buses that shuttle tourists around the city and testing a version of their own. The modern, sleekly designed bus don’t look nearly as hideous as the old vintage, red London ones and will be put to use for a 30-day trial on “Fifth Avenue and some express routes between the Bronx and Manhattan.” Although London often gets credited with the double decker tradition, they uses to populate midtown up until 1953 and according to the Times, resurfaced briefly in the 70s. |amNY|
