ABSTRACT
The developments in the bus industry of Romania is the main focus of this article. With its relatively low car population, the country's dependence on public transportation becomes quite critical in the capital the size of Bucharest with its population of two million. This article looks into the operation of the Regia Autonoma De Transport Bucuresti, an organization which operates a fleet of over 1,200 single deck buses from seven garages in the greater Bucharest area. The author describes one of the organization's northern area depots in this article. Buses are the means of transport for most citizens in the area and, therefore, usually very crowded. Passenger fares have to be kept artificially low.
