Some bus historians may lament that "modern buses all look alike".
I personally don't agree with this adage, but it is true that modern transit buses in the post-ADB era are required to conform to a pretty hefty set of specifications, probably in order to qualify for funding from the Feds and perhaps other governmental agencies.
From APTA comes this link to a very comprehensive set of specs established for low-floor diesel transit buses:
