Volvo's low-floor double-deck version of the B7L bus has reached a significant milestone, with over 1,000 vehicles sold throughout Great Britain in two years. This figure is set to grow steadily over the next 12 months. Launched in 1999, the B7L Double Deck has enjoyed successes in more of the capital cities in the British Isles, especially in London, Dublin, where it is currently the standard bus. B7Ls also serve Edinburgh and can be seen in the Leeds and Birmingham conurbations.
