The only articulating bus that Iíve seen where the engine isnít in the back are the Volvo buses. They have a side engine in the back of the front half and they use them in the Netherlands.

I've driven the Houston Metro NeoPlans. JUNK BUSES!!!!!! They leak like a siv, NO acceleration, NO turn radius at all, no smooth suspension. They are JUNK, and that's when they are new! I hated driving them. I'd prefer to drive a 70" sleeper, long nose, narrow cab Pete with blinders hooked to a 53' trailer fully loaded down than that junk bus.

Just sayin'..... Buyer BE WARE!!!!!
