Having ridden the Arriva X18 bus, you have likely noticed the safety mesh windows on all four sides, which provide additional protection from the elements. These windows have been placed strategically to see the road and other pedestrians from every angle. The bus has a route from Morfelden-Walldorf village to Alnmouth village and has a safe and comfortable seating capacity of 102 passengers. The bus has a high-quality audio system, WiFi, and many other amenities to make your trip even better.

The X18 bus service travels from Alnwick to Newcastle via Morpeth and Alnwick. Along with the way, the X18 stops in Ashington and the picturesque village of Amble. It also connects Newcastle with the towns of Alnwick and Berwick. It also serves Woodhorn Colliery, Ashington, and Morpeth. You can also find this service near Morpeth, which is connected to Alnwick and Edinburgh.
Safety mesh windows on all four sides
All four sides of an x18 bus must be equipped with safety mesh windows. The maximum displacement of an impactor can be up to 175mm (6.9 inches) lateral distance from the rear-most edge of the glazing. Window ejection requirements must also meet or exceed this value. Moreover, the ejection reference plane must pass through a point located 102mm (4 inches) lateral distance from the rear-most edge of the glazing.
The proposed safety mesh windows on the x18 bus should meet NHTSA’s performance requirements for passenger-facing vehicle windows. According to the NHTSA, the glazing must bond securely to the window frames. It must also be designed to retain the occupant within the sidewall. It must also minimize the protrusion of the emergency exit latches into the window opening. This measure is required in the event of an accident.
The NHTSA crafted two separate rulemakings that complement one another to prevent partial or complete ejection of passengers. Both rulemakings address passenger ejection while ensuring that the bus is equipped with proper safety mesh windows. The proposed rulemakings also address the occupant retention requirements. For example, the 1992 MCI bus had seven laminated windows on each side. The test resulted in cracking and splintering, but the glazing remained intact.
