How heavy is a double decker bus?

Cars & Vehicles
London
Miscellaneous Vehicles

it is about 15 tonnes, about the weight of 15 small cars

The weight of an unladen London double decker bus is 12 tons. Approximately 15 passengers equal 1 ton, and as 90 passengers can easily get on a double decker then you can add 6 tons to the original 12, making 18 tons when full. As the old Routemaster's were only 7 tons unladen, then you can see why London's road surfaces are so badly damaged. The manufacturers will tell you that the hydraulics of a modern day bus spread the load, but the fact is there for all to see; 18 tons of bus is still going to weigh 18 tons, whatever you do with it.
