    Abstract : Background: The relevance of conducting this thesis is evident by the fact that bus and coach casualties have been “stubbornly stable” in Europe recent years and a need for investigating if a similar trend could be found in Sweden is therefore obvious.

This implies that cars are not equally utilized and thus, passengers perceive on-board crowding higher. READ MORE
