A CONCEPT FOR A NEW CITY BUS (HUMBUS)

EN GEMENSAM RESA MOT BAETTRE VETANDE OM STADSBUSSAR. ETT PROJEKT ON DESIGN AV MORGONDAGENS BUSSAR

A study of actual conditions, through using public transport, speaking to travellers and visiting manufacturers has laid the ground for more tangible design development of a new city bus concept - HUMBUS (human bus). The issues now arising and begging consideration are user needs and function in favour of previous technical obsessions. The aim is to highlight areas needing attention from a design point of view if the city bus, or public transportation as collectively defined, is to be made attractive and userfriendly. This report contains the analyse of important fields for the next phase in this project. Almost all manufacturers are tested and their products (city buses) studied from the design point of view.
