Bus mass transport vehicles are designed to ferry passengers along routes in cities and between cities. Advancement of technology in the 21st century has resulted in various designs of buses. Innovation in bus design has been centered on lightweight materials, formability and aesthetic appeal of the bus interior and exterior. Meanwhile the bus structure has not developed in terms of emergency exit tools to aid quick passenger egress in the case of emergency. This paper focuses on the design on a bus emergency exit tool. This tool will be applicable at designated emergency exit windows. The tool will assist passengers to escape the bus as soon as an accident occurs while emergency services have not yet arrived. The design will be modelled using SolidWorks software.
