  15. Yes they do look a bit like English double deckers, I bet this is a hugely busy station Deeepak. So many of the little taxi cars too.

  17. At first I was expecting to see downtown London, but then I saw I was way far away from where they really were. Love the old double deckers. They are so colorful and such fun to ride. Wish we had them here in the USA. Such a nice and festive shot....ready for the holiday season..RED! genie

  31. I miss these buses here in Bangalore. In Trivandrum I have boarded double deckers a few times. I think Trivandrum is the only city in south India to have these kind of buses.

  35. Ah, the red double decker bus from Mumbai :) . At last count, there were 122 double deckers left and it is sad that they are silently phasing them out due to other reasons like Metro construction, Monorail work etc. Still have a lot of memories like waiting for a double decker to go to Matunga in the 1990s to buy coffee powder :)
