Double decker buses are returning to the streets of Sydney but for use on longer outer area routes where there is little short trip travel.
This great photo from the SMH is Sydney's Queens Square. As you can see, the trams are disappearing and the buses are taking over. I believe this photo is from 1950 and the tram from Watson's Bay to the Erskine Street Wharves has been cut back to terminate here or is about to be, no longer running along King Street. Long had King Street shop keepers and police argued for removing trams from King Street.
It was a marvellous time in Sydney, when those slow and shabby rattling old trams that constantly blocked traffic were replaced by buses and Sydney's traffic problems were forever solved.
