Abstract [en]

Big cities of the future will be challenged with pressing traffic problems as the ever increasing traffic in the city centers causes queuing, delays and increasing air pollution. Subsequently, city dwellers become inflicted by stress and deteriorating health.

Modern society demands mobility, and we are all dependent on being able to travel around smoothly and efficiently. The private car leaves room for individualism and flexibility, yet it is rather space demanding and thus a root cause for the prevailing chaos of many big cities. In contrary, the bus gathers a large number of persons in a relatively small area, thus saving space and being environmentally friendly. Regrettably, however, with bus designs human aspects such as the mental and physical comfort often are given low priority in endeavors to run an economically viably visible business.
