Electric bus

Transportation at Disney is one of my favorite topics for discussion and I believe it was one Walt’s favorite areas of exploration. Personally, I’m always on the lookout for and thinking of ways where Disney could improve. And, while I’m not a big fan of the buses at WDW, they beat driving to the parks myself then transferring to a tram and what not.

The following concept, now in trials, could be one that I think Disney could utilize at WDW.

I’m not real sure where the “Online” portion of the title comes in, but in general, this sounds like an interesting concept that I’ll be watching.

I have to wonder if solar panels on top of the bus would help with the charging, especially considering how much sun they have in Florida.

    I’d rather drive than use the Disney bus system in most cases.

    The concept sounds interesting, however.

    mmmm…. Just one remark, not about these busses or the induction power feed principle, but simply about Disney. Reminder : WALT Disney, is no more. Disney CORPORATION is. That is determining everything there is …. ;-)
