New Bus for London - capacity (1)

Question number3450/2012
Meeting date21/11/2012

Question by Darren Johnson

It has been established that despite your public announcements the New Bus for London prototype is heavier than other existing double decker buses and that particulate emissions are worse than other existing buses. Will you also confirm that the official legal capacity of the bus is 79 (63 seated, 15 standing & 1 wheelchair), which is far short of average of 85 carried on a normal double decker?
