Bust bus

The Eye spotted this broken down bus in Pembroke Broadway the other day.  Which reminded us of the time, umpteen years ago, when we were involved in developing a fuel-saving device for buses.  It worked, but it was a commercial failure – the priority for bus operators turned out to be mechanical reliability.  Fuel-saving was of secondary interest.  So our high-tech device didn’t appeal.

(It’s a bit ironic that the technology is now used routinely in Formula One cars – perhaps we were just looking ahead too far!)
