How heavy is a double decker bus?

it is about 15 tonnes, about the weight of 15 small cars The weight of an unladen London double decker bus is 12 tons. Approximately 15 passengers equal 1 ton, and as 90 passengers can easily get on a double decker then you can add 6 tons to the original 12, making 18 tons when full. As the old Routemaster's were only 7 tons unladen, then you can see why London's road surfaces are so badly damaged. The manufacturers will tell you that the hydraulics of a modern day bus spread the load, but the fact is there for all to see; 18 tons of bus is still going to weigh 18 tons, whatever you do with it.

How much does the BODY without Frame Chassis of a 60 passenger school bus weight?

Depends. Just the steel weighs approximately two tons. The floor is usually 3/4" plywood with rubber covering, the windows are surprisingly heavy. The seats must be added in too. If you were looking at lifting a complete body including the firewall and windshield minus the frame, running gear and drivetrain, allow for about 3 tons. The frame weighs about a ton, the rear axle and suspension about the same, wheels and tires are probably 200lbs each. The nose and core support are heavy too, the front axle with suspension and steering probably more than half a ton. A decent diesel engine would be 1500 lbs, a smaller one about 900 lbs, transmission with adapter plate from 350 to 700 lbs. Not hard to see how it quickly adds up to a bus that weighs around 8 or so tons.
