the aardvark bus

as much input as we can get please

this is just a one project header for redesigning how a bus should be if it wants to be as perfect as it can be

my ideas
does a bus need to be 4.3 meters high ? would 2.5 be better ( its only the isle you need to walk down )
would a wedge taper front work .. less wind resistance and instead of bug splatting pedestrians it would just break their legs and slide them up the windscreen

mostly capacitive storage with battery available if needed ... maybe reconfigurable so a pack which can be a capacitive storage pack or a battery pack slides into the road side of the bus
maybe 5-6 packs per buss each sliding onto 3-6 copper spigots on the inboard side which provide the inboard stability and electrical connectivity to the buses system
the outboard side clamps in with a different shaped clump that sets the bus system to a capacitive or a battery pack in that position ( 2-5 mins changeover per pack )

capacitor packs charge the battery packs when they are above 80% ( 50 % is zero usable for them )

inductive when possible capacitor chargers at most stops and all depots

motors for each wheel
configured for the days route with capacitive storage being predominantly in use ... more battery packs for longer range if outer hub routes or an express bus
more capacitive if around town trolley route

large carbon fibre panels which can be easily replaced and fixed / remolded on a mold when broken
long life light alloys used where possible

for the foreseeable future all surfaces accessible by felt tip pen to be coated with teflon type materials

everything sealed and waterproof inside so heavy cleaning if required is a water blast job

seat belts
seats you can comfortably sit in or adjust

space for a human driver if required
at the door payment checker not inside the bus
bike racks on the back
suitcases and pram storage on kerb side ( hence the storage packs being outboard )
( ,,,,,,,, ....... A E I O U use em sparingly theres probably not enough )
