World's longest bus?

Where in world can you find the longest bus?

Maybe this is a candidate. It's 24 meter long, built by Volvo and you can find it in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Nice. I read in the PDF that it's ~25 meters long, so we have a leader here.

This is also another Volvo bus from South America... it has 6 doors and may be the same model (except for doors) as the one above, but I am not sure. The cab certainly looks similar to me.

The picture is from Bogota where I understand they are being tested for use in TransMilenio (BRT).

And this bus, that operates in São Paulo, is a Volvo B12M CAIO (a Brazilian bus builder) Millenium Top Bus, with 26,8 meters (The famous Curitiba biarticulated bus are 24 meters). This bus model operates too in Goiania, Brazil, with three air-conditioning units.

Wow, a Van Hool biarticulated bus! This is a AGG300 low-floor. The biarticulated buses of Brazil aren't low-entry/low-floor.

@apostle,. are those in common use,? or is it just a experimental version for tryin' out. I didnt know we had these long versions in te netherlands, the normal articulated version's we see pretty much anywhere, but this long versions. They seem to be a little to long to run in city centers of P.E. utrecht, haarlem or whatever.
I've seen one in almere too, probably to test only, i don't understand why they're not in use yet in almere because our regular long buses are just at full capacity during rush hours, and they will perfectly fit in our system with the seperated lanes everywhere.
