I think Riga (Latvia) has none high floor buses in use (well atleast in the city) ...

The only ones were these old Ikarus 260 and Ikarus 280 but they're not in use since early 2005


Now we have only low floor buses

Solaris Urbino 12, Urbino 15 and Urbino 18


Mercedes Benz Citaro, Citaro L and Citaro G


Ikarus E91


Well this could be something between high floor and low floor bus:
Mercedes Benz O345 and O345G


The latest buses are Mercedes Benz Conecto but don't know if it's low floor

hi !!
the reason why are high floor buses is that most these vehicles have floor engines, and the floor is the frame for the other parts




and the low floor buses have back engine (motor) and the frame is in the roof
(ikarus 412) you can see the engine and the floor is hanging down from the roof

Yes, it is common in America.

I have seen is also on the few European buses sold in the USA, like the Van Hool newAG300 sold near San Francisco. Strange effect...

Successful BRT Systems

I am hearing a lot again about BRT (Bus Rapid Transit). Does anyolne have any good examples of successful BRT systems? Not just ones that saw an increase in traffic over the bus they replaced, but ones where it made a significant impact on traffic and/or economy?

Check Curitiba. It is a prime example of how Rapid Transit and good planning go hand in hand.
