CHILDLINER -- A NEW LOGISTICS CONCEPT FOR URBAN-SUBURBAN COMMUTING
This paper presents a totally new concept for a mass transit system for urban-suburban commuters. Its principal features are a new jumbo size double decker bus which consists of compartments entered direct from a double-deck terminal dock. The bus would have no center aisle and would be longer than present vehicles thus vastly increasing the passenger carrying capacity and reducing loading and unloading time. The mainliners would be confined to super highways and terminals. The terminals would also be served by small feeder buses from outlying communities.
