Post-War Bus Design for City Transportation 450205

BUSES designed for city service, Mr. Fageol says, will have most emphasis placed on a distinctive and pleasing appearance, maximum roominess, comfortable seating, improved standee and driver vision rather than on body streamlining.
Reduction of weight must be attained, he feels, through the use of lighter and more efficient powerplants, transmissions, axles, brakes, and springs that will better absorb the shock loading.
The author also believes that, in the majority of cases, acceptable aircraft practices and standards will be the tendency of all manufacturers, whether for tubular construction, all-welded, or formed and riveted sections.
