Greater Amsterdam.

There are three company's participating in the public transport sector of Amsterdam; two private and one government.

Connexxion

Normal bus, both city and regional lines.



Zuid-Tangent, express bus from the city of Haarlem (part of Greater Amsterdam) via Schiphol Airport and the suburb Amstelveen to Amsterdam Southeast ArenA stadium/Bijlmer district. This line is pretty special for Holland, because it has (most of the time) it's own specially designed lane and stops.



Interliner, luxurious express bus



Arriva

Normal bus, same story as Connexxions services.



GVB (Gemeente Vervoers Bedrijf - County Transport Company)

This is the Transport Company of the City of Amsterdam. They also service the tram- and metrolines in Amsterdam.

Normal citybus.

Hong Kong buses have several liveries depending on operator.

KMB (new golden livery)


Citybus (traditional yellow livery)


NWFB



There are others but those fleets are smaller so I won't include them here.

I took some more pics of Copenhagen buses today - I hope it's okay I post them..

The first two a A-buses, these run main lines with a high frequency ( 3-5min )

[IMG]http://i16.************/67547tj.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i15.************/6gmf392.jpg[/IMG]

The last one is a normal bus, that normally goes every 5-10min..

Yellow buses are used in most larger cities in Denmark - but the A buses ( red and yelow ) are afaik only present in Copenhagen

The buses are normally Swedish, either Volvo or Scania...

No they are only a couple years old...

The problem with them is height clearence - why they still only operate on a few lines...

I'm pretty sure just about every line would be DD had it been posible.. hopefully they will make it posible in the future..
