60K is the figure I overheard last Wednesday night from a city bus driver talking about the price of a city bus (the bus was stuck in the snow, so there was a lot of talking). These are potent hybrid buses with electricity and climate control. I reckon that retrofitting the basic bus with water/sewerage systems can be extremely expensive, which is why we are focusing here on a more basic urban model with bottled water at the mid-section bar and a hatch in the floor for emergencies.
