Disk brakes are standard today
Disc brakes are nowadays fitted as standard in buses, public service vehicles and coaches. Older bus models also have drum brakes or a combination of drum brakes on the drive axle and disc brakes on the steering axle. Compared to drum brakes, disc brakes offer the advantages of low structural dimensions and better heat dissipation, are easily accessible and therefore easier to maintain and repair. In addition, the own weight of the brakes is lower with disc brakes, which permits higher useful loads. And last but not least, they offer a high degree of safety, as the braking effect does not decrease, even when continuously braking.
