Sample text

More common than the full-sized bus is the minibus, or converted pick-up, again often bought second-hand and often unreliable. Also common are "truck-buses", or lorries, usually in the range of three to five tons capacity, constructed to carry freight but adapted, typically with bench seats along each side, to carry passengers also. Where smaller vehicles are used, there are usually several operators, each with a single vehicle, running on the same route. Therefore if one vehicle is out of service due to mechanical failure, there are alternatives; on routes with only one operator there is not usually a replacement vehicle, so that the service ceases to run until the bus is back on the road.

The expansion and improvement of the road network, which facilitates long-distance travel, also generates demand. Demand for many long distance services is subject to Problems and Characteristics of Public Transport in Developing Countries 31 pronounced seasonal fluctuations, while seasonal climatic factors often affect the operation of long-distance services, especially where these are operated on unsurfaced roads, which may become impassable during prolonged periods of rain. Rural Public Transport Rural public transport may be conveniently considered under two headings: purely rural, and rural-urban transport.

The size of town above which a more formalised bus service of transport becomes viable cannot be precisely defined: it depends on factors such as population density, income levels, road network, and cultural attitudes towards public transport. In most developing countries, the critical size lies somewhere between 250,000 and 500,000. As discussed in Chapter 20, when a city's population increases to the point where a more formalised system is desirable, there are often practical difficulties in bringing about the change.
