(I think all new buses ordered should have them but I know many disagree. I just think when in London its all so much easier and quicker, and the lower saloon generally feels more spacious).

"Health and safety"

The Metro Replacement is rammed, we terminate at Regent Centre and a full standing load and they only open the front door. When challenged driver says 'sorry I'm not allowed'

Unless they were converted since the 21, then the ramp is at the middle doors? As per London spec... so not sure how they couldn't use the middle doors, if that is still the case?
A driver opened the centre doors on a MRP service I was on a couple of years ago, same goes for the artics on X66

Before the Vyking's were allocated to the 21, I am led to believe they had to risk assess every bus stop, and the stops which were deemed a hazard had the sticker placed on the flagpole which said they couldn't stop there.

Just sounds like a right clart on tbh.

Can't wait for them to go although i haven't been on one for ages.
