    Hi @eric31 - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I'm unsure that I can help you with your query, but hope others may be able to do so. Are you trying to find such a buggy that can go on a bus, or do you have one already that you're wondering about?

    Hi @eric31 and a warm welcome to the community! Here is what I found online: Can your scooter go on public transport?
    Class 2 scooters may be taken onto public transport, Class 3 cannot. Class 2 scooters are lightweight and designed for use on pavements. Class 3 scooters are classified as road-going vehicles; they are bigger and heavier, and not suitable for bus travel.
    However, please do read the article as it lists specification and how to apply for a bus permit.

    Please do let us know how you get on. :)

    Hi @eric31…...my local bus company [sounds as if it belongs in a cowboy movie] insists that they test you and issue you with a pass showing that you're able to control your scooter safely.  They also have restrictions on the dimensions of the scooter itself. Many class 2 scooters exceed their limits unfortunately.   Best if you phone your local bus company for the most up to date information.

    Best wishes.
