ELECTROBUS--REVIEWS OF 9000 MILES OF CITY TRANSIT DEMONSTRATIONS.

A simple, battery-operated, long life, low maintenance, city transit electric bus has been developed with low pollution and low noise emission features. Performance and power measurements have been taken from demonstrations at several typical urban center city bus service operations. From test results detailed in this paper, it is shown that the electric bus obtains 11.5 miles/gal of fuel compared to 3.5 and 6.0 miles/gal for equivalent sized gasoline and diesel engine buses in similar urban transit service.
