Input 2 - Annual Bus Costs - This sheet contains annual bus operational costs and annual operational criteria to establish a baseline for comparison across all fuel types.  Inputs that are held constant include useful life, annual mileage, average speed and operator labor rate.  Variable inputs include annual bus maintenance costs, periodic brake reline costs, and technology specific costs which can account for individual costs associated with hybrid drive systems, alternative fuels, or other pertinent technology costs that add to the annual costs of the vehicle.   A fuel economy input for each fuel and technology type along with fuel cost is included to establish annual fuel costs for each type of vehicle.
