DEFINING THE LOW-FLOOR BUS; ITS ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES. PUBLIC TRANSPORT '91. STUDY OF BUSES. REPORT 5. INTERNATIONAL UNION OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT, 49TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS, STOCKHOLM

UITP's International Commission for the Study of Buses has given the following definition of the low-floor bus: The low-floor bus is a vehicle that, between at least the first and second doors, has a floor that is low and even enough to dispel the need for steps either in the passage between the doorsor their immediate vicinity. This report contains ten examples of different bus types which all correspond to the definition of a low-floor bus and can be produced using technology available today. By kneeling the bus to a height of 70 mm on the door side, boarding and alighting conditions can be enhanced still further.
