Government buses use the middle doors at all stops to let passengers alight, but the private buses only use them to unload passengers when the bus reaches the end of its run. But don't ask me why they are different - I don't know.........
Here are a couple of photos of preserved buses (not my photos this time). Some of the double deckers had a door at the front in addition to the rear entrance, but most did not. The single deckers had doors at the front and back.
I won't ask you why Fran!
Are double decker buses still used much in Australia? The engines on the older style buses were very conspicuous - the bus makers of today seem very inventive in hiding away the mechanical parts and maximising the interior space to get the best seating capacity.
