Intercity Buses of the United States Present & Future 800887
Intercity buses serving the United states have developed into what may be described as a design formula. The operating environment and markets served have had the greatest influence on the product configurations. Other physical design limitations imposed by State and Federal legislation have tended to reinforce conformity in intercity buses.
This paper reviews each of the three intercity buses commonly used in the United States. Comparitive specifications have been prepared to aid the uninitiated and the experts alike.
In conclusion, an advanced design bus has been conceived to expose ideas which might eventually influence the development of future vehicles and configuration limiting legislation.
