Double-Decker bus for sale

If you have a spare $50 to $55,000 and a penchant for double decker buses, former Waitaki mayor Alan McLay has a deal for you.

The double-decker Bristol he’s owned for seven years is on the market.

He’s used it for transporting community groups and private parties around the district one of which was our staff Christmas party a few years ago. That I’ve refused to go on another such tour is a reflection on the behaviour of some of the passengers on that trip and not on the bus or its very capable driver.

Sally Rae has the story of the bus in the ODT  (from where I copied this photo):
