  Project Data

TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Synthesis 2: Low-Floor Transit Buses examines the operational experiences of low-floor transit buses in fixed route service and the viability of this technology in meeting the transit industry's accessibility goals for the future. Information on low-floor transit buses operating in the United States and Canada, including technical specifications as well as status reports on buses manufactured in North America; buses under development; and buses in Europe, obtained from contacts with international organizations is included. It contains descriptions of standard low-floor buses, as well as another smaller bus used primarily in paratransit service.  This topic is published at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=2459
