A vehicle’s drivetrain comprises the components that deliver power to the driving wheels, excluding the engine. Depending on whether the buses have a manual or automatic transmission, these components differ. For instance, in a manual-transmission bus the drivetrain will consist of components such as a clutch, gearbox, flywheel etc. while in an automatic transmission it will consist of components such as a torque converter.
