Transportation technology in the 1950 has still presented many problems to overcome. The city streets where the local transit bus still required two personnel to operate the daily stopping and handling of the fares. In 1950, the first Allison V-Drive transmission revolutionized the modern transit bus, as we currently know it by eliminating the need for a driver and the conductor on the bus. From this point on the transportation industry has evolved into the mass-mover we see today. Moving millions of passengers daily with no glitches in the schedule.
Moving to modern, less polluting fuels has not happened overnight. Now you can see Compressed Natural Gas, Liquid Natural Gas, Hydrogen/hybrid, electric/hybrid, green diesel, Bio-diesel, and gasoline driven powered hybrid transit buses in any major city.
