According to the European classification system, a bus is a vehicle “having at least four wheels, designed and constructed for the carriage of passengers, comprising more than eight seats in addition to the driver’s seat.” These vehicles function in a variety of ways to transport different amounts of passengers from location to location. From minibuses, to school buses, to cross-country tour buses, each serves a unique purpose for the economy and the community of people that benefit from the transportation provided.
The major bus builders in Europe are Volvo, MAN, Mercedes, and IVECO, with factories in various countries across the continent. These companies, as well as others, provide the bodies, engines, and every other part to safely construct vehicles for passengers.
Some of the aspects of these vehicles that make each model unique:
- Fuel type
- Passenger capacity
Prevalence in Europe
Almost 900,000 buses driving across Europe’s roads are an essential part of daily life for millions of people. Not only are they important for commuting, but they are also a significant contributor to the tourism economy. The lifespan of a bus depends on many factors, but most significantly, size, engine style, and maintenance. The average age of European fleets is currently around 10 years old, which means that new and used buses are constantly for sale or lease.
