TRANSBUS ENGINEERING TEST PROGRAM
This report summarizes the engineering tests that were performed in support of the Transbus Program implemented in June 1971. Transbus prototypes built by three manufacturers were subjected to a series of tests. The objectives of the engineering tests were to obtain evaluation data to determine the degree of compliance with the Transbus specification, to assess the design improvements over current production buses, to identify product improvements required for production designs, and to provide overall technical assessments of the designs for a government decision regarding a production phase for Transbus. This report presents an overview of the entire test program--the test articles, procedures and facilities used for the development tests, acceptance tests, and independent engineering tests. It also presents a summary of the data obtained in each individual portion of the testing program.
