Q:

What is the weight of a single-decker bus?

A:

Quick Answer

The weight of a single-decker bus varies greatly between different makes and models but a typical single-decker bus weighs between 11 and 14 tons. Its weight mainly depends on the year the bus was made, as modern single-decker buses are made out of more lightweight material. The purpose of the bus and how many passengers it is meant to hold are two other factors that affect the weight.
