Double Deck Demo

Posted September 6th, 2018
Double Deck Bus Demo

Get a new perspective and try out our double deck bus demonstration.

Welcome to the top!

We can’t wait for our electric double deck buses to get here next year, so we’re running a demonstration double deck bus through some of our lines that travel along the 10 Freeway. Come try it out and let us know what you think! We’ve listed below where and when you can come aboard.

The double deck bus is temporarily unavailable for demonstration while some issues with the diesel engine are resolved. We’re sorry for this interruption, and we’ll let you know as soon as it’s back on the road.  Thank you for your patience.
