These Special 1960s Bike Buses Were Used To Transport Cyclists Across The Thames

quote [ Those staircases, built into the side of the buses, had no doors to prevent passengers from tumbling down the stairs and off the vehicle while it was in motion, and though there aren't any records of this actually happening, it wouldn't have ended well, especially as the bus driver wouldn't have been allowed to stop in the tunnel if an incident did occur. ]
