    Default London Buses

    Had to let limo go. Are there any "rules" about which door to get off from on bendy buses?

    The back door. Don't ever bong your Oyster card, make sure you eat chips and play tinny (c)rap music on your mobile phone out loud.

    No

    But that does not mean you can get on via both doors on a double decker

    Get on through the back door and you don't have to buy a ticket.

    (There's a Freudian joke in the somewhere....)

    Been a while since I've been on a bus too.

    I think you just ask the conductor as they escort you to your seat.

    excluding airport buses from terminal to plane (and vice versa) I can't remember the last time I took a bus anywhere

    don't you just run and jump on the back of one then give the conductor 10p when he comes round for the fares???

    Last time that I caught a bus - upstairs was the smoking section. Is this not the case any more

    Just be careful of the swarm of transport police and ticket inspectors at the Warren Street/Euston Road bus stops looking for their next victims.

    I notice this almost every day as I speed past in my car.

    I guess they got to boost "solved crime" figures somehow.
