EFFECT OF VARIATION OF SPEED LIMITS ON INTERCITY BUS FUEL CONSUMPTION, COACH AND DRIVER UTILIZATION, AND CORPORATE PROFITABILITY

The effect of speed limit and passenger load on fuel consumption was determined using actual intercity buses with simulated passenger loads over different types of terrain. In addition to road tests, laboratory type measurements were made on four intercity buses. Studies were also made to ascertain the effect of reduced speed limits on maintenance and operations.
