The Double-Decker Bus is a standard vehicle. It is unlocked by default. It is based on the real-life AEC Routemaster. In HQTM Team's Classic Madness mod, it is replaced by the AEC Regent RT 191, the AEC Routemaster's predecessor.
The AEC Routmaster has been the typical London double-decker bus since it was introduced in 1956 by London Transport to replace the Leyland Titan and the AEC Regent RT 191. Although they were only produced between 1959 and 1968, the Routemaster remained in public service until 2005, when they were restricted to tourist routes and replaced by more modern buses. This is due to the Routemaster's innovative design, which long outlasted other busses produced during its service. A new Routemaster hit London streets in 2012.

In-Game Description Edit
Lots of durability, but don't expect it to corner like a Mini Cooper!
- Groovy (unlocked through the completion of Midterm 2 in San Francisco Crash Course)
- The picture on the Vehicle Showcase screen shows the Double-Decker Bus model from the game rendered onto a real life background. This also applies to the City Bus, the Light Tactical Vehicle and the London Cab since they are fictional vehicles.
- The Double-Decker Bus was just known as the "London Bus" in early beta versions of the game, and originally had the words "London Transport" written on the sides of the bus.
- In the alpha version of the game, this bus only reused sound effects from the Panoz GTR-1 as it didn't have its own sound effects yet. This has been noticed in the game's trailer. This also applies to the London Cab.
