Bus Shite (I'VE BEEN PAPPED, NOOOOOO LOL)

Recommended Posts

Where are the  "zero-emisions" busses**to come from?   

Are there any (that aren't a trolley-bus)?   

Or is this just a bit of Boris-spin?

**Is busses really the plural of bus?

Image result for pedal bus

One is old hat, the other the future, can you guess which is which?

BYD makes chassis that ADL has bodied as a single decker. I see them increasingly frequently in London but have never travelled on or read about them.

Brighton buses has bought a load of E400 electric things which are apparently 'range extended'. My Grandad uses them on his route and told me they really are fully electric. Surprising too as they're used on a very hilly route. Plenty of them on their official fan-site:

The plural of bus is bi.

Been on one of the BYD ADL things once.  Main memory?  That it rattled like a 30 year old PS being driven down a cobbled street flat out and that it looked like the glazing was about to part company with the bodywork at any moment.

Remember being on a couple of year old Ikarus in Romania back in 1991 where the windows were already being held in with wooden wedges.

Good to see progress on the transport mode for the masses of the future.
