EVALUATION OF URBAN TRANSIT BUS MODIFICATION KITS TO REDUCE ENGINE SMOKE, ODOR, NOXIOUS EMISSIONS AND NOISE

The Truck and Coach Division of General Motors Corporation (GMC) has developed a modification kit for the current series of GMC diesel transit buses. The kit, known as the EIP Kit, is designed to reduce toxic emissions, odor, smoke, and noise, and can be installed on all GMC transit buses manufactured since 1959. A two-year field evaluation of this kit has been conducted. Toxic emissions, smoke, and noise from buses equipped with the kit were compared with those from control buses in Washington, D.C.; San Francisco, California; and San Antonio, Texas. Odor emissions were measured from modified and control buses at San Antonio. Records were kept of maintenance costs and of problems encountered in installation and operation.
