  • Description

    THE PEOPLE OF MONTEVIDEO, CAPITAL OF URUGUAY, SHOULD SOON BE SEEING A BUS WHICH MAY SOLVE MANY OF THEIR PEAK HOUR TRAVEL PROBLEMS. IT IS A SINGLE DECKER BUS WITH ROOM FOR ONE HUNDRED PASSENGERS -- FORTY SITTING AND SIXTY STANDING.

    THIS BUS HAS BEEN BUILT BY THE BRITISH FIRM, A.E.C. (KNOWN AS ACLO IN SOUTH AMERICA) WHICH SUPPLIES MOST OF THE FAMILIAR RED LONDON TRANSPORT BUSES.

    IN THE PAST YEAR, THE FIRM HAS RECEIVED ORDERS FOR NEARLY SEVEN HUNDRED BUSES AND CHASSIS FROM SOUTH AMERICA. MORE THAN FIVE HUNDRED WERE ORDERED TO RE-EQUIP THE CITY SERVICES OF BUENOS AIRES.

    ANOTHER LARGE CONSIGNMENT IS DESTINED FOR MONTEVIDEO. THE URUGUAYAN BUSES HAVE SEMI-AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS AND ARE FITTED WITH ALL-METAL BODIES MADE IN HOLLAND.

    TRAFFIC OFFICIALS IN MONTEVIDEO ARE HOPING THAT WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF THE NEW BUSES, ITS STANDARDS OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION MAY BE AMONG THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD.
