MOTORBUS AND ENVIRONMENT

THIS REPORT PLACES THE BUS IN THE ENVIRONMENT, EVALUATES ITS SHARE OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR NUISANCES, INDICATES THE CONSTRAINTS TO WHICH IT IS SUBJECT, AND REVIEWS THE CONTRIBUTION WHICH CAN BE MADE TO PRESERVING AND IMPROVING THE ENVIRONMENT. EXTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES SHOULD RECEIVE ATTENTION; ELECTRIC TRACTION CONSTITUTES A SOLUTION FOR THE FUTURE. THE TARGET FOR NOISE REDUCTION MIGHT BE TO SECURE FROM MANUFACTURERS A REDUCTION OF SOME 10 CB (A) IN EXTERNAL NOISE. IT IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE BUS TO BE MATCHED TO THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT AND TRAFFIC CONDITIONS.
