  • Description

    THE PARIS TRANSPORT AUTHORITY IS TRYING OUT A DOUBLE-DECKER BUS TO CARRY 100 PASSENGERS. IF THE TESTS ARE SUCCESSFUL IN THE NEXT MONTHS, A FLEET OF DOUBLE-DECKERS WILL GO INTO SERVICE NEXT YEAR.

    AT THE PRESENT TIME, PARIS IS UNDERGOING A VAST MODERNISATION OF ITS TRANSPORT SYSTEM AS THE CITY AND SUBURBS DEVELOP. TODAY EIGHT-AND-HALF MILLION PEOPLE LIVE IN THE PARIS REGION, AND THE FIGURE GOES UP EACH YEAR.

    DOUBLE-DECKERS LAST APPEARED ON THE PARIS STREETS NEARLY 50 YEARS AGO, BUT OLD PARISIANS WITH A LONG MEMORY REMEMBER THEIR PREDECESSORS, DRAWN BY A PAIR OF HORSES, FROM THE DAYS OF THE "BELLE EPOQUE".
