Conventional bus




school bus
Conventional bus used as school bus.

A conventional bus consists of a truck chassis with a bus body mounted on top of it, behind, and attached to, the truck's hood and front fenders. This is one of the cheapest ways to build a bus.



This type of bus is rare in Europe, where it is seen as old fashioned, rather than conventional. Even many South American cities have banned it from their public transport services.

In North America, the conventional bus is widely used, mainly as school bus, but also as charter bus.

The construction of the conventional bus is similar to that of the cut-away, another typical North American bus type. See all bus type definitions.
