Wikipedia:WikiProject Buses

Welcome to the Buses WikiProject, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of buses.

(For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects).

Goals
  • To cover bus routes in major cities and their history, including streetcar lines. Note that minor routes do not need to have a separate article, but can simply be mentioned in a list.
  • To cover bus models and their history.
  • To determine which routes are suitable for a separate article rather than as part af a list.
  • To create a common format for articles and lists of bus routes.
Scope
  • Anything related to buses and bus routes, including trackless trolleys, mostly in relation to public transport.

IdeasEdit

  • Is there a bus-specific infobox? If not, that would be a good addition to have, since the Infobox automobile allows for some information to be displayed, but buses differ from cars in other ways that the automobile one doesn't do a bus justice. SteveCof00 (talk) 09:30, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
There is one for an overall bus service, Template:Infobox bus transit, and one for individual bus routes, Template:Infobox busline. —Onore Baka Sama(speak | stalk) 13:26, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
While those two are useful for articles about bus routes and services, there are articles being written about the vehicles themselves...Template:Infobox UK Bus is somewhat of a starting point, but it probably isn't used much outside of UK-related bus articles (for obvious reasons), and it seems to be more specific about buses on a specific route than a vehicle type. I was wondering if there was interest in an developing a bus specific infobox or using the automobile one for article like the Gillig Phantom, GM New Look, Blue Bird All American, etc...-SteveCof00 (talk) 22:24, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Template:Infobox UK Bus was moved to Template:Infobox bus, which is now a redirect to Template:Infobox automobile. Template:Infobox bus may be considered the less confusing name to use, now. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 16:53, 29 August 2016 (UTC).
  • Is there any standard format for fleet lists/rosters? (The ones I've seen on different Wikipedia pages seem to be a slap-dash mash-up of the very detailed information that appears on bus-specific web sites.) Useddenim (talk) 21:55, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
