Hi, most of the buses near me are older ones with steps.

are there any experts out there who can think of the best buggy/stroller/pushchair (whats the difference anyway?) for me?

It needs to be one hand open and close. A list of options so i coukd compare other features would be perfect.

You could open a Yezz one handed with a little practise. The auto lock release button is incorporated in the handlebar. You will need to use your foot to press the frame open too though.
The fold can be done one handed but you will need to bend over well and perhaps use a knee on the frame back to click it fully shut.

The 2012 BJCM has the fold lock on, but its been specifically made so that it can be unscrewed if not required smile
The Noa, Babyzen YoYo, Recaro Babyzen, Stokke Scoot and most umbrella fold pushchairs can be opened and closed one handed.

Had a look over the weekend and i think it has to be either the noa (seeing later) or the BJCM.

if I go for the BJCM do I want a 3, 4 or GT?

3 is decent enough but can be tippy with carrycot or carseat.

4 is more stable generally.

GT is good for walking anywhere due to the wheels.

Totally depends on your needs smile

Thanks PeanutMD.

just looked at the Noa and cant get my head round the feel of the flexible frame.

now thinking i should wait to test the yoyo- its not out yet is it?

If i ordered a yoyo from anroad how much import duty do you have to pay?

*abroad not anroad!

No import duty as its Europe - if there are any taxes you pay up front. They are due in the UK any time though. I would give Whitestep a call and see exactly when.

Thanks Tiggywunkle I will.
