Design of the new VDL Futura by Van der Veer Designers
To implement an entirely new business strategy for VDL Bus & Coach, Van der Veer Designers designed a new generation of coaches: the VDL Futura.
The bus has a professional and modern appearance, devoid of excess. The emphasis lies mainly on the aerodynamic front with the large VDL logo and the arrow-shaped headlights. The horizontal lines clearly divide the sides of the body surfaces in functional sections; passenger compartment, luggage compartments, and engine compartment. Special attention is paid to the commanding rear with a characteristic shape that causes lower pressure at the rear; form follows function.

Deer jumps through Pennsylvania bus windshield
A deer has taken a ride on a western Pennsylvania bus.
The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat newspaper reports the white-tailed deer crashed through the windshield of a public bus being driven Tuesday evening in Johnstown, about 65 miles east of Pittsburgh.
The deer hopped around frantically near the driver before jumping on empty seats and running in circles in the aisle.
Authorities say the driver stopped the bus and opened the door and the deer got off. Cambria County transportation spokesman Josh Yoder says it "just walked off the bus."
The bus was carrying one passenger, who was seated in the back far from the deer. No injuries have been reported.
The bus has been taken to a maintenance facility for repairs.
There's no word on what happened to the deer.
