Amsterdam sightseeing tour company to use American school buses

At the end of March, second hand school buses imported from the U.S. will be driving tourists through Amsterdam’s city center.

The school buses replace the double-deckers taken off the streets last August because their open-topped upper deck put tourists in too close a proximity to the live electricity wires used by the Amsterdam trams.

The school buses are currently being adapted. Each bus will get an open roof, while glass covers can be quickly put in place if and when it rains (Amsterdam weather does tend to include lots of rain).

The hop-on, hop-off system employed last year will no longer be used, as it was in violation of City regulations. Instead Best Holland Excusions will offer two tours: 1 hour and 2 hours. Tickets will also be sold that allow tourists to use the tour bus to go to a specific museum

The buses will be in use from March 20, 2008.
