xx Disney testing new buses
« Thread started on: Mar 10th, 2012, 2:55pm »

I have heard that Disney is testing a new type bus at WDW. Commonly called "Bendy Buses". I have found a Top Gear test of different types of buses for London, UK that includes the "Bendy Bus" type that may be of interest to you all:

Saw this on facebook...then emailed it to a friend so do not know who I ripped it from...sorry.

Disney are to test "Bendy Busses" They are 62ft long, with 3 axles and can carry 112 people. They will be testing the bus throughout March and into mid-April of this year. If the trials go well the aim is to use these buses on the busy routes between the parks and the Value / mod resorts. Disney first tested a similar bus in the early 90s without introducing them.

Almost all of the buses here in Eugene are like that and they are great! We have a newer line that has a dedicated lane called the EmX that would be much easier for wheelchairs to load into, no ramp or lift, it is even with the sidewalk.
