"Lots of durability, but don't expect it to corner like a Mini Cooper!" - In-game description.
The Double-Decker Bus is a standard vehicle. It is unlocked by default. It is based on the real-life AEC Routemaster. In HQTM Team's Classic Madness mod, it is replaced by the AEC Regent RT 191, the AEC Routemaster's predecessor.
The Double-Decker Bus was known as the "London Bus" in early betas of the game, and had the words "London Transport" writen on the sides of the bus.
The AEC Routmaster has been the typical London double-decker since it was introduced in 1956 by London Transport to replace the Leyland Titan and AEC Regent RT 191. Although they were only produced between 1959 and 1968, the Routemaster remained in public service until 2005, when they were restricted to tourist routes and replaced by more modern buses. This is due to the Routemaster's innovative design, which long outlasted other busses produced during its service. Currently, a new Routemaster is in development, which will be hitting London streets in 2012.

- The picture in the Vehicle Showcase shows the Double-Decker Bus model from the game rendered onto a real life background. This also applies to the City Bus, the Light Tactical Vehicle and the London Cab since they are fictional vehicles.
- It is one of four vehicles that crashes into curbs while driving, along with the Panoz GTR-1, the VW New Beetle RSi and the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage. However, this problem can be negated by downloading the Curb mod.
