The aim of the study was to describe the working environment of bus drivers according to contemporary research. The result of the study is supposed to act as basis for future development of the working environment of bus drivers. The study comprises the following three parts: Part one - An introductory interview study with bus driver employers. Part two - A literature review on recent research on bus drivers' working environment. Part three - A questionnaire study with bus drivers in active service. The three parts of the study gave a somewhat diversified picture of what is the centre of attention for the different groups when it comes to the working environment of bus drivers. Furthermore the results implicate that there is a lot of work that needs to be done in order to improve the physical and psychosocial working environment of bus drivers. It seems important to strive for consensus between bus driver, employers and vehicle developers with the purpose of developing an optimal working environment for bus drivers.
