  Front side bus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This bus and the cache memory connected to it is faster than accessing the system RAM via the front side bus.
The maximum theoretical bandwidth of the front side bus is determined by the product of its width, its frequency and the number of data transfers it performs per clock tick.

Bus operators are considering innovative solutions, including a modern double decker which carries as many passengers as an articulated or "bendy" bus but costs less to buy and takes up half the road space.
Unlike British bus waiters who edge the road along one side of a bus stop in hierarchical order, people stood in what seemed like random intervals from each other in a perpendicular fashion from the stop on the wide footpath.
Not many sought information on the bus stop itself which was indicative of their status as regular travellers rather people simply stopped walking in the general vicinity of the bus stop.

 Buses and bicycles sharing urban streets
Bus drivers' only defense with bicyclists who do not position themselves to be visible, and who violate the rules of the road, is to be cautious and vigilant.
Turnouts at bus stops (that is, widening the street at bus stops, or placing the bus stops in the same line with on-street parking) improve traffic flow for bicyclists, and for all other vehicle operators except possibly, the bus drivers, who must merge back into the traffic flow when leaving the bus stop.
If the bus does not turn left, a bike lane to the left of a bus lane requires more road width, but does not violate the basic principles of traffic flow.

 BusDepot.com - VW Bus / Camper / Vanagon / EuroVan Specialists
As shipped, the Ezy-Awning can be used on either side of a VW Bus or Vanagon, or any van with a smillarly sized rain gutter, by using the included pole that clamps inside the rain gutter.
Because the awning is reinforced on all four sides when assembled, it maintains its shape without the need for guy ropes (although they can be used to improve stability in heavy wind).
The domed design, with pole support on all four sides, not only makes it structurally strong but also allows rainwater to roll off of it - preventing the sag that flat-topped awnings suffer during rain storms.
