A STUDY OF NOISE, TEMPERATURE AND LIGHTING LEVELS ON URBAN BUSES

A survey was made during the summer months on urban buses on tyneside. The temperature and light level were measured at three positions on each of four single-deck buses and at six positions on each of four double-deck buses. The temperature inside the bus was shown to correlate with that outside the bus as expected and light intensities were found to vary by amounts small enough to be hardly noticeable by the average eye. The noise climates inside two single-deck and two double-deck buses were assessed and the character of the noise was shown not to be the same for all four buses. (A) /TRRL/
