Bus Facts – August 2014

In Norway, any kind of vehicle wrap advertising, including public transportation advertising, is prohibited. Norwegian officials believe that, in the case of an accident, passengers would have a hard time breaking a window that is covered with a thick decal. Even though advertisers attempted to dispute this claim, the law against wrap advertising still exists within Norway.

Bus passenger journeys make up over two thirds of all public transport usage.

Over 50% of businesses surveyed in the report considered bus had a role in recruitment and retention.


The first two omnibuses departed on July 4th 1929 from Paddington New Road London, now Marylebone Road, bound for Bank Junction.
