What is a Bus ?
 A bus (or omnibus or autobus) is a road vehicle
designed to carry passengers. A bus can
generally seat a maximum of anywhere from 8 to
300 passengers. Buses are the most widely used
form of public transportation, although they are
also used in tourism and as private transport.
Continuation
 The most common type of bus is the single-decker
bus, with larger loads carried by double-decker buses
and articulated buses, and smaller loads carried by
midibuses and minibuses. A more luxurious version of
the bus is the coach. Buses are usually powered by a
diesel engine, although early buses were horse drawn
and there were experiments with steam propulsion.
Trolleybuses use power drawn from overhead power
lines. In common with the car industry bus
manufacturing is increasingly a globalised activity, with
the same design of bus appearing on roads around
the world.
History of the Bus
 When London's urban public transport was brought together in
1933 under the auspices of the London Passenger Transport Board
(LPTB), bus services covered a vast area.
 At the time, they served much of what is now Greater London, as
well as areas in many of the adjacent counties.
 Within Greater London, the bus network was complemented by
tram and trolleybus systems. The trams were finally withdrawn in
1952 and the trolleybuses a decade later, in 1962, with buses
replacing both services.
 From 1970 to 1984, London Transport (LT) came under the direct
control of the Greater London Council. The area for which LT was
legally responsible was also reduced to the present 1,580 sq km
(610 sq miles), although a few services into outlying areas were
retained to maintain well-established links.
