ABSTRACT
Volvo double-deckers were featured at the opening of the latest section of the Leeds Guided Busway. It is believed to be the only Guided Busway worldwide to be worked with double-deckers. Operators involved have chosen Volvo B7L for this project. The Leeds Guided Busway is promoted by a consortium comprising West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, Leeds City Council and bus operators Arriva and FirstGroup. A feature of stops is shown so that the Guided Buses can use their guidewheels to run along the curb so that the platform is right alongside the curb when the buses stop to pick up or set down. The B7L's low-floor accessibility suits this feature, because wheelchairs and pushchairs can roll straight off the curb to the bus.
