Question #2

Why is a bus flat in the front?

 

Wouldn’t it be better aerodynamically if buses had a rounded front like all other cars? It would just cost more money for the gas because of the air resistance created by the flat front.

What I thought was that a flat front would, first of all, make the bus shorter, making it easier for it to turn. Also, it would probably help in the city because sometimes you have to get really close to other cars, and it would be better for a bus to have a flat front to scrape by them.

 

Would love to hear your thoughts.
