High Capacity Buses The Role for the Articulated Bus 820974
Transit authorities have increasingly found that the provision of economic services to their communities require more efficient operations. Higher capacity buses have been evaluated, and as a result of trials, have entered more widespread fleet service. Articulated buses have been employed and the improvement in public transport efficiency can be assessed from a consideration of the advantages, and constraints. The relative efficiency of articulated buses and competitive high capacity buses can be assessed in a similar manner. The final choice is largely dependent on the size of the initial investment in infrastructure adaptation and the resulting whole life operating costs.
