I'll agree with that.

International/Navistar corporation introduced a new school bus that features the New DT466 engine design. Also Thomas, who is owned by Freightliner, has the new C2 (cough cough) which is based on Freightliners Business Class platform.

That reminds me of these buses from when I was a kid. Anyone from SoCal will remember these as the "Twinkie Buses." I always used to hate sitting in them; loud, torn seats, massive stick (yes it was a manual) poking out in the aisle. Now I realize they have more character than the newer buses from then as well.

One of my school buses is a Thomas Built Bus from 1995, but it's number is 96824. It means it's the 1996 model and it fits 80 pax (kinder-kids, actually), and the last two are a little sketchy for me, but I think it means it's the 24 in the fleet of it's model and year. I used to hate these ones cause they weren't new, the seats were all deflated, and it just wasn't new.. But nowadays, I'm beginning to like them a whole lot more, but I still hate them because they stink like something died up in the air vents, but their sound is way cool. I'll try and get a recording of it.


My other school bus is 26960 (overload) or 26944. I have no idea what engine or transmission that they use. I wish I knew..

Oh yea! I remember Crown Super Coaches, they was built in California for California. These large school buses came stander in three length, 35, 38 and 40. Until around 1988 or 89, the 40 footer has 10 wheel and had a weight of 48000 lb (the weight of a MCI D 4500). They usually had these choice of engines, Cummins 743/855 or Detroit Diesel 6-71, the cummins sound the best in these bus.

PS: My favorite Crown Supercoaches, both was 10 wheel 40 footer with Cummins engines. The 40 footer LAUSD had are my first favorite, my second is Certified Transportation Service bus # 11. I got to see # 11 in person at Disney land in 2003.

The ones here in Adelaide, look better then those American ones. Nice design without ugly bars and advertisements on the front. Though the older buses do look a bit ugly. To look for yourself go to google images and type in 'Adelaide Metro buses'. Will come up with some.

Since I don't come from Australia and haven't been there for about 6 years I wouldn't have a clue, but I do think the busses and trams in Norway, Europe and NZ look far more modern than the one in the US. Although I will say the articulated silver and orange and silver and red bus which someone posted a picture looks pretty cool, like a big Airstream caravan.

So thats where the term "Magic Twinkie" came from. Learn something new everyday in this forum.

I rode on a crown everyday from 8-11 grade (1177). Very nice bus and turned better than the Thomas it replaced (1045).

CNG all the way. I didn't include pics of the older diesels as they are being phased out. Heck, even the first generation of CNG buses is set to be replaced by newer ones (or at least it should be).

Yep, you get in at the rear and somewhere, far away in front of you, you can guess where it ends. Walking from one end to the other takes ages.  Smile Ours are 42m long, but the examples in Basel are 43m long! Time to trump them, I'd say...  Wink Those things have a nice acceleration.

What really makes me angry about the service provider here: Not a single vehicle (buses and trams) is equipped with a/c for the passengers, not even the new Bombardier trams on order will be! Some regional bus lines which also run inside the city are a refreshing exception (pun intended).

Running an A/C unit is expensive. If I turn the A/C on my bus for a about 8-10 hours, I use about 15-20 more liters of diesel a shift. It adds up. Not too mention the maintenance costs involved. Most of the other drivers I work with really don't care, they leave it running on all the time. I'm a bit more conservative with it, most people are on the bus for only 10-15 minutes, so they can handle it (or at least should be able to handle it). Of course, you always get those chronic complainers "Its too hot! Turn the A/C on!" and of course these are always the people that when you're sitting downtown for 10 minutes they want to sit in the bus and expect you to leave the the a/c and engine running for them. Sorry, not gonna happen.

The weather in Germany doesn't get as hot or as long as it does here (and I know this because I lived there for 10 years and commuted on the bus and DB for many of those years). A/C in cars are not as popular there as they are here and with buses its the same. Its just not worth the investment and extra costs. Same thing if you go to many supermarkets in Germany, no A/C.

It does get hot in the summer (at least here in the south)! The problem is not so much the temperature, but the added humidity. I've sweated much more in Germany than in LAS. Some companies obviously think the extra comfort is worth the money, while others don't. Oh, BTW, almost no cars are sold anymore without a/c.
A/c in buildings is another issue as they don't heat up as quickly as cars or buses. Still, many supermarkets have a/c, especially the newer ones.

I'll agree with humidity. 28 degrees in Germany is yuckier then 40 degrees here. Same in the winter, it doesn't matter what one wears, it goes right through to the bones.

Some companies do, others don't. I don't see why a Government funded transit system should have to spend all those extra tax dollars just to give a little bit of comfort to those people who don't even make a dent in the operating costs of running a transit system. My commute was about 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon including 1 bus, 2 trains and the stassenbahn. none of them had A/C and you learnt to deal with it.

Quoting A342 (Reply 23):

Many cars there still have A/C as an option, not as a standard feature. They have been getting a bit more popular, but still not nearly as popular as they are here.

Many supermarkets/malls/retail stores/resteraunts do not have a/c.

Quoting A342 (Reply 23):
How old are these buses?

The Dennis' are about 12 years old, the International is about 4 years old and the Novas are about 1 month old. The old Orion's we had (years before I started working for the company but I grew up with them) never had A/C and it was just as hot back then as it is now. Again, we learnt to accept it and no one complained. But now, most passengers know we have A/C and God forbid you tell them that they can't wait in the bus and leave the engive running while I go for my coffee break.

Lets do a bit of math here, lets say we use the A/C everyday for the months of July and August (even though May and June get just as hot here) 12 hours a day and 8 buses. The current price for diesel is 134.0 per liter. So, we have to pay a good $15000 a year extra on fuel alone just for the comfort of a few people. Its not worth it, sorry to say.
