While double deck coaches were still used extensively by long distance charter operators, it wasn't until 2011 when Queensland manufacturer Bustech introduced the CDi double decker to their low floor bus range which has led to a resurgence across Australia and New Zealand of modern low floor air-conditioned double deck city buses.
