You can have the most beau­ti­ful bus with com­fi­est in­te­rior seats and lat­est tech ap­point­ments, but if it’s stink­ing hot in sum­mer, or bone chill­ingly cold in win­ter then you need de­cent air con­di­tion­ing in­stalled or fixed. Fast.

There are some in­ter­est­ing de­vel­op­ments and trends go­ing on in the world of bus and coach air­con­di­tion­ing sys­tems, so we take a look at a few key play­ers to hear what they have to say. Fabian Cot­ter re­ports.
