In a discussion of the report of the international commission for the study of motorbuses, it is stressed that physical and psychological conditions and also requirements of passengers should be considered when designing public transport vehicles. Such considerations give rise to construction and design requirements relating to vehicle body, interior design, cleaning and safety. Although power units such as the stirling engine are being examined, the diesel engine is likely to be the principal bus propulsion unit. Attention should be paid to reducing engine noise as well as improving exhaust gas limit values to prevent toxicity. /TRRL/
