A: The best answer

Bath Bus Company,
London Bus Bristol,
Crosville Motor Services

Q: How many miles
to the gallon do they do?
A: Between 10
and 15. Not bad, considering some of them can carry almost 70
passengers, and a lot more fuel efficient than most modern buses.
Q: Do you need a
special licence to drive them?
A: This depends on
when you passed your car test. If you passed before the
mid-1990s, only if you're
carrying more than eight passengers, providing the passengers aren't being
carried for hire or reward. Otherwise, a full car licence (and
a bit of practice) will do. If you passed your car test after
that, you need to get a provisional PCV (passenger carrying vehicle)
